FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most commonly used means for uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a web server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the very best option when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers
are exceptionally powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a lot of sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to change it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our detailed how-to videos, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you get and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the signup process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll get FTP access to the VPS without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software suite which comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even several FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want different individuals to be able to access the web content inside it using their very own personal sign-in details. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks through a simple-to-use interface.
