File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most popular methods for exchanging web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have any complications.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t restricted this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a given FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled different educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you will get the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server configurations, irrespective of which Control Panel you’ve chosen during the server order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for every site or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you would like to allow a number of people to connect to that folder using their own log-in details. Even if you have never used a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, since everything is done via an intuitive graphical interface and takes only a few clicks.
