FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous methods for sending files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud hosting service that we offer, as we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous sites all at once or give other people access to multiple directories. Once a certain job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting multiple sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each 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 account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can watch our detailed tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which Control Panel you select upon signup – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you’ll be given FTP access to the machine without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software stack which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even several FTP accounts for a single folder – in case you want different people to be able to connect to the website content inside it with their very own set of sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks through a user-friendly web-based interface.
