FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread means for uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the option to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the best solution particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each of the cloud hosting plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous websites all at once and to keep them updated with no effort. If you provide the login credentials to another person to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are extremely powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a large number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check our detailed instructional video clips, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you get and which Control Panel you pick during the server order procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will obtain FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software bundle that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have or even separate accounts for a single folder – in case you want different persons to access the web content in it using their very own set of sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface.
