FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used means of exchanging files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There are several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume a download/upload if there’s a problem with the connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best option in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our Linux cloud packages. This service isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP applications are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve opted for on the order page, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a particular account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT expert leaves the company and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help repository that includes educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages offered by our company has a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an account for each website hosted on your machine, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want different users to connect to the same folder with their own login details, for instance, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have any problems, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
