File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most popular methods for transferring website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will do the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the very best solution if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the shared web hosting services offered by us, since we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can have multiple websites at once or give other individuals access to different folders. Once a specific job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t restricted this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a given FTP account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a developer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled a number of educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from us, you will be given the opportunity to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS packages, irrespective of which Control Panel you have picked during the registration procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Based on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for every site or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you want to allow several persons to access that folder with their own log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a web hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, since everything is done via a simple-to-use web-based interface and takes just a few mouse clicks.
