FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread ways to exchange web files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, including the option to restart an upload/download in case there is a problem with the connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Any of the hosting plans that we offer will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to give other people access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software app installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain multiple websites at once and to keep them updated without any effort. If you provide the login information to some other individual for a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. 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, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you do not need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the website and you do not want them to connect to your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have made a number of instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you have never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will have the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server packages, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you have selected upon signup – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Depending on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you’d like to permit different persons to connect to that folder using their very own set of sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on the machine, since everything’s done through a time and effort saving GUI and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
