FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used methods of uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will take care of the rest. There’re several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the perfect option if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be pretty easy with any of our cloud hosting. This feature isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one mouse click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful options such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP apps are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting many websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed 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 will be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check out our detailed instructional videos, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which package you order and which Control Panel you choose on the order page – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you will be given FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for one single directory – if you want a number of users to be able to connect to the website content in it using their own set of sign-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse via a user-friendly web interface.
