FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread ways to exchange website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re several pros of employing FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the best option if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with any of our cloud website hosting service. This service isn’t restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can access. Handy options such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client applications are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have picked at signup, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a particular account any longer, 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 developer or in case an IT person quits the firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. An elaborate Help section that contains how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will be provided with the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server configurations, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you’ve chosen during the VPS order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your demands, you can set up a different FTP account for every site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you would like to allow a number of people to access that folder using their very own set of log-in credentials. Even if you have never had a hosting account previously or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything is done through a simple-to-work-with web interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
