FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular means of exchanging files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload in case there’s 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 access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the best solution particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with each of our Linux shared hosting packages. This service is not limited, so with our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one single click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Handy functions such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP apps are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are incredibly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting many websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check our exhaustive educational video clips, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages that we are offering has a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of persons to set up a connection to the exact same directory using their very own set of log-in details, for example, it’ll take several mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t encounter any complication, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
