File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is one of the most commonly used ways to exchange files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the very best solution if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Any of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple Internet sites all at once and to keep them up to date with ease. In case you give the login details to some other individual to perform a specific task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a few clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve chosen during the order process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and block persons who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert quits your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An in-depth Help library that comprises instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS plans that we offer has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an account for each website hosted on the server, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you join – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want different users to be able to set up a connection to the exact same folder with their own login details, for instance, it will take several clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any difficulties, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
