FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most commonly used ways to transmit web files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will do the rest. There are several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the perfect option in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each of the shared web hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other people access to any site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design software app installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to manage numerous websites at once and to keep them updated without any effort. If you give the login details to some other person to do a specific task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not put a restriction on this service with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without effort if you no longer need it – for instance, if you have hired a developer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to access your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot different tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be given the opportunity to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, no matter which hosting Control Panel you have selected during the subscription process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for every site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you would like to permit a number of individuals to be able to connect to that folder using their own login credentials. Even if you have never had a hosting account previously or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the machine, since everything’s done through a user-friendly graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks.
