FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods for exchanging files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux web hosting that we offer, as we have chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain multiple websites all at once or provide other individuals with access to different directories. As soon as a certain task has been done and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to administer various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts that can access the very same directory – if you want different individuals to be able to access the exact same web content with completely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don’t include a restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your websites without efforts. If you want to block the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP software applications. In addition, we have comprehensive help articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

If you open a VPS web hosting plans with us and select any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we’re offering – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it’s an integral part of the standard software pack that comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will permit you to create as many FTP accounts as you need and to specify what folder each of them will access. If you want, you can even create separate accounts for one and the same domain name and give several users their very own set of log-in credentials to connect to the content. Any of the three Control Panels will offer you the possibility to create, to edit or to delete an FTP account in a few easy steps and with less than a few mouse clicks, so even if you do not have any previous experience, you’ll be able to administer an FTP account without a hitch.
