FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous means for exchanging web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There are several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal solution especially if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our Linux shared web hosting plans. This functionality isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have created and what folders they can access. Useful functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software apps are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even different accounts that can access one and the same directory – if you would like several persons to be able to access the very same web content with entirely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated plans do not involve any restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your files and to modify your sites with no effort. If you want to limit the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP apps. Furthermore, we’ve prepared in-depth help articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans that we offer has any cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of users to connect to the exact same folder using their very own set of log-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not have any problem, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
