FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used methods of transferring web files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the best solution especially if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the shared hosting packages offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can manage numerous sites simultaneously or grant other people access to multiple folders. Once a particular job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated packages are rather powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to edit it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check our in-depth how-to video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS

The virtual private server packages that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you select during the server order procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you will obtain FTP access to the VPS without installing any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software suite which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even different accounts for one single directory – if you want several individuals to be able to connect to the content inside it with their own login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few mouse clicks via an easy-to-use GUI.
