FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous ways to upload and download files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the option to resume a download/upload in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have comprehensive help articles, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you have chosen on the order page, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account any longer, you can simply delete it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful if you use the services of a developer or if an IT expert quits the company and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages offered by our company includes any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an account for each Internet site hosted on the VPS, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you join – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to be able to set up a connection to the very same directory with their own login details, for instance, it will take a few mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not run into any impediment, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
