File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most commonly used ways to transfer files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s a problem with the connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the best solution particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our Linux web hosting packages. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks done. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one single click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can access. Handy options such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP clients are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your website files anymore. For your convenience, we have selected different how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you’ve never used a web hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll get the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server packages, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve picked during the registration procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can set up a separate FTP account for each site or a number of accounts with access to a certain folder – if you wish to permit several users to connect to that folder using their own set of login credentials. Even if you have never opened a web hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything is done via a simple-to-work-with web interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
