File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most popular ways to exchange website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There are several pluses of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect option particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our Linux shared hosting. This functionality is not limited, so using our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what folders they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP programs are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you have opted for on the order form, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is especially useful if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT expert quits your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. An extensive Help section that comprises educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS offered by our company includes a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an account for any site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want several individuals to be able to establish an FTP connection to one and the same folder with their own personal sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not experience any difficulty, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
