File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most widely used ways to upload and download web files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will do the rest. There’re several advantages of using FTP, including the ability to resume an upload/download when there is some 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 connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect option when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the website hosting offered by us, as we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple websites at the same time or give other people access to different directories. As soon as a specific job has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t limited this feature with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a particular account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have shot different tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we’re offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server package you order and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the subscription process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even different accounts for one single directory – if you want different individuals to connect to the website content in it using their very own set of sign-in details. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than several mouse clicks through an easy-to-work-with interface.
