FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous methods for transmitting files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload when there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best option especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any website in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them up to date without any efforts. If you give the login credentials to another person to carry out a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to modify its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your files anymore. For your convenience, we have shot a number of video tutorials, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you’ve never used a hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

In case you open a VPS web hosting plans with our company and pick any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we are offering – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it’s an essential part of the default software suite that comes with all VPSs ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will enable you to set up as many FTP accounts as you need and to indicate which folder each of them will access. If you wish, you can even create multiple FTP accounts for the very same domain name and give several individuals their very own login credentials to access the web content. Any of the three Control Panels will provide you with the ability to set up, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a few simple steps and with no more than a few clicks of the mouse, so even if you have no prior experience, you’ll be able to administer an account without efforts.
