FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used methods for sending website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the perfect option particularly if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux cloud hosting service offered by us, as we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can have multiple Internet sites at once or give other individuals access to different directories. As soon as a specific job has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve chosen on the order page, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a certain account any longer, you can simply remove it and prevent individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT person retires from your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. A detailed Help database that includes video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we offer will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you pick at signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software suite that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want several users to access the web content in it with their own set of login details. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks via a user-friendly web-based interface.
