FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread means of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will do the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing FTP, among them the option to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the shared hosting service offered by our company, as we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous Internet sites at the same time or give other people access to separate folders. As soon as a certain task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting plans, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to administer various 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 Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are extremely powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting lots of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you have never used a hosting account previously, you can watch our comprehensive video tutorials, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting service offered by us includes any cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on the machine, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several users to connect to the very same directory with their very own set of login details, for instance, it will take several clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not run into any problem, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
