FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used methods of transmitting website files between a computer and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download when there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal option 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 straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you experience any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting plenty of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can check our comprehensive tutorial video clips, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will get the option to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server plans, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked during the server order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you would like to permit a number of users to access that folder with their own set of log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your Virtual Private Server, as everything is done through a simple-to-use GUI and takes only a couple of clicks.
