FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used means of sending website files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the best option particularly in case you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an extensive Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve chosen on the order form, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy in case you use the services of a web designer or if an IT person departs the company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help section that contains tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll be given the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server plans, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you have selected during the subscription procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for every Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you’d like to permit different individuals to be able to connect to that folder using their own set of login details. Even if you have never used a website hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your VPS, since everything is done through an easy-to-use interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
