FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most commonly used methods of transferring web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There are a number of advantages of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with any of our Linux cloud packages. This service isn’t restricted, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can connect to. Handy functions such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP client applications are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are very powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting numerous websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on 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 servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to modify it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a hosting account before, you can check out our in-depth instructional videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll have the opportunity to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, no matter which Control Panel you’ve picked during the VPS order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your requirements, you can create a different FTP account for every site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to allow a number of individuals to be able to connect to that folder with their own personal sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything’s done through an easy-to-work-with web interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
