FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used methods of sending files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as 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 deal with all the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create 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 very best option particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their job and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have detailed help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any difficulties.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not set a limit on this functionality with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific account or to edit its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web developer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of educational video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

In case you open a VPS web hosting plans with our company and choose any of the three hosting Control Panels that we offer – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your VPS, since it is part of the software stack that comes with all virtual servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will allow you to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish and to specify what folder each of them will access. If you wish, you can even set up several FTP accounts for the very same domain and give a number of people their very own personal login credentials to connect to the website content. Any of the three Control Panels will give you the ability to set up, to edit or to remove an FTP account in a few easy steps and with less than a few clicks of the mouse, so even in case you’ve got no past experience, you will be able to manage an FTP account without any effort.
