FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used means for exchanging files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will handle all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart an upload/download if there is some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect option particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux website hosting packages offered by us, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can have multiple websites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to separate folders. Once a given job has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you have opted for during the registration process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you need from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a particular account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is especially useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT professional exits the firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An exhaustive Help database that includes educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have no past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we’re offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you purchase and which Control Panel you choose on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will receive FTP access to the machine without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software stack which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even several FTP accounts for a single folder – in case you want different individuals to connect to the content inside it using their very own personal sign-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-use interface.
