File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is one of the most famous methods of transferring web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There’re several benefits of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared hosting service offered by our company, because we’ve decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous websites simultaneously or give other people access to separate directories. Once a given job has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just delete the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts that can access the very same folder – in case you wish different people to be able to access the very same web content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated service don’t involve a restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to update your Internet sites without a hitch. In case you want to block the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account with no more than a few clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP software apps. Furthermore, we’ve got in-depth step-by-step articles and how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers that we are offering includes any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for any site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of people to make a connection to the exact same folder with their own set of log-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take several clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t encounter any problem, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
