FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used means of exchanging files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will do the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect option particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our shared hosting. This feature is not restricted, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks done. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP client apps are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are exceptionally powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a lot of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a web hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth video tutorials, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans that we are offering has a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on your VPS, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you join – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to establish a connection to the exact same directory using their very own set of log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not encounter any complications, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
