FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular means of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the very best option especially when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux cloud hosting offered by our company, since we’ve chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or give other individuals access to separate directories. Once a specific task has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. 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-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even separate accounts that can access the same directory – if you would like several individuals to be able to access the very same content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting don’t involve any limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to administer your files and to modify your websites with ease. In case you would like to block the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP applications. What’s more, we have comprehensive help articles and instructional videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS offered by us has a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for any site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you order – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of persons to be able to establish a connection to one and the same folder with their very own sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t experience any difficulty, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
