FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread methods for uploading and downloading web files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting plans that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to give other people access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design app installed on your personal computer, you will be able to administer numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them up to date with no effort. If you provide the login info to another person to do a specific task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a couple of clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the package that you’ve picked during the signup process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a certain account anymore, you can just delete it and block individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT specialist retires from your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. A detailed Help library that contains how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll be provided with the possibility to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ve selected upon registration – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Based on your demands, you can create a different FTP account for every site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you’d like to permit a number of persons to be able to connect to that folder using their very own set of sign-in details. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account before or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, removing or editing any FTP account on the server, as everything’s done via an intuitive interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
