FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread means for transmitting web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution particularly in case you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our Linux cloud hosting. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one mouse click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can access. Useful options such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP software apps are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t restricted this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a certain account or to change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you do not require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve prepared different instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a web hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you order and which hosting Control Panel you select during the order procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll obtain FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software stack which 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 several accounts for one single directory – if you want several persons to be able to access the web content in it with their very own set of sign-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account takes no more than several clicks of the mouse through a user-friendly web-based interface.
