FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used means for transferring web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can manage multiple websites simultaneously or grant other persons access to multiple folders. Once a particular job has been done and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the possibility to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server plans, irrespective of which Control Panel you have picked during the order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for each website or several accounts with access to a specific folder – if you would like to permit different people to be able to access that folder using their very own sign-in credentials. Even if you have never opened a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything’s done via an easy-to-navigate web interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
