FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular ways to exchange website files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There’re several advantages of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the cloud hosting that we offer, because we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites simultaneously or give other people access to separate directories. As soon as a certain job has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting are pretty powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting many websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to modify it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can watch our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting services that we’re offering includes a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for each site hosted on your VPS server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. It also does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you join – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to set up a connection to one and the same folder with their own set of login details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have any difficulties, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
