FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means for transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several advantages of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the best option particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer, as we have chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or grant other individuals access to different folders. As soon as a certain task has been accomplished and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve chosen during the order process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account any longer, you can simply delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or if an IT specialist retires from the firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An in-depth Help database that includes educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we offer has a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for each Internet site hosted on the VPS server, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you join – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different persons to be able to set up an FTP connection to the very same folder with their own personal sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any complications, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
