FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used methods of transferring files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will cope with the rest. There’re several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the connection and the option to set up 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, emails or other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any given moment. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any predicaments.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even multiple accounts that can access the very same directory – if you would like different people to be able to connect to the exact same website content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
do not include a restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your websites without any effort. If you want to restrict the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP software applications.

FTP Accounts in VPS
The virtual private server
packages that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick during the subscription process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack which is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even different FTP accounts for a single folder – in case you want different individuals to be able to access the web content in it with their very own set of sign-in details. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-work-with web-based interface.
