FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread methods for uploading and downloading files between a computer system and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will deal with all the rest. There are several benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there is a problem with the connection and the ability to create 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, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best solution in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has completed their job and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated plans are very powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a large number of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to check the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can check our elaborate how-to video clips, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers that we are offering has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an account for each site hosted on your virtual machine, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will select when you register – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want a number of individuals to make an FTP connection to one and the same folder using their very own set of log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take several mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any obstacle, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
