File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most commonly used ways to transmit web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the best option especially if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. 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 directly from them, without the need to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design application installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to run numerous sites at once and to keep them up to date without effort. In case you provide the login details to some other individual to carry out a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you have selected upon signup, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a given account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT expert retires from the firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help repository that includes instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS that we’re offering has a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on the Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want several people to establish an FTP connection to one and the same directory using their very own set of login details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not encounter any impediments, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
