FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widespread methods for transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There are a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve made a number of video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts if you’ve never used a website hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we are offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you get and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the VPS order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you will have FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software suite that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want different users to connect to the web content inside it with their own log-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks via an easy-to-navigate interface.
