FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widespread methods of transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with the rest. There are several pros of using FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option to set up 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 other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Any of the shared web hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to give other people access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to run multiple sites all at once and to keep them updated without effort. If you give the login details to another individual to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked during the order process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a specific account any longer, you can simply remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert retires from the company and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An extensive Help library that contains video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS offered by us has a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any website hosted on the VPS, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you join – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several users to set up a connection to the exact same folder using their own set of log-in details, for instance, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any complication, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
