FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most commonly used methods of transferring website files between a computer and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. With 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 other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you encounter any impediments.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll get the possibility to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, irrespective of the Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the order procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for every website or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – if you wish to allow several users to be able to access that folder using their own personal login details. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything is done through a simple-to-navigate interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
