FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular means of sending web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best solution if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Any of the shared web hosting packages offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software app installed on your computer, you will be able to run multiple sites at once and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you provide the login information to another individual for a specific task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not set a restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account without effort if you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve created a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS

In case you open a Linux VPS packages with us and choose any of the 3 Control Panels that we’re offering – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your machine, since it’s part of the software pack that comes with all VPSs ordered with a Control Panel. This will permit you to create as many FTP accounts as you want and to define the directory that each of them can connect to. If you wish, you can even set up multiple accounts for the exact same domain and give several people their own set of sign-in details to access the web content. Any of the three Control Panels will offer you the option to set up, to modify or to remove an FTP account in several simple steps and with no more than a few clicks, so even if you have no past experience, you’ll be able to administer an account effortlessly.
