FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous means of transmitting files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There are a number of pros of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the best solution particularly in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our shared website hosting plans. This feature is not limited, so using our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP programs are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are stunningly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting plenty of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check our detailed how-to videos, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which Control Panel you choose during the VPS order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software stack that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even different accounts for one single directory – if you want different users to be able to connect to the website content inside it with their own sign-in details. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
