FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used methods of exchanging website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download when there is a problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to 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 any other info, which makes it the perfect solution when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have in-depth help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we are offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select during the signup procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll obtain FTP access to the machine without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have or even multiple accounts for a single folder – in case you want different persons to be able to access the website content in it with their own personal log-in details.
