FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used ways to transmit web files between a PC and a server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are several pros of using FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the cloud plans that we’re offering, as we have decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can maintain numerous websites at the same time or provide other people with access to multiple directories. Once a specific job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove that account with several clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting packages, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click 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

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you’ve chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT specialist retires from the company and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. An elaborate Help database that contains tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the opportunity to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve chosen during the order process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you wish to allow a number of persons to access that folder using their very own sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account before or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on the server, since everything is done through a user-friendly web interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
