FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used means of uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given moment. If you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any difficulties.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts that can access the very same directory – in case you want several individuals to be able to access the exact same website content with totally different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not include a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to modify your Internet sites with ease. In case you wish to restrict the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP apps.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting that we are offering has any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an account for any site hosted on your virtual machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want different people to access the same directory using their own personal login details, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not need to deal with any problems, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
