FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most popular methods of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will do the rest. There are several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume an upload/download in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best solution when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with any of our Linux shared hosting. This service is not restricted, so using our time and effort saving Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful options such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software apps are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are really powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an extensive number of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can watch our in-depth video tutorials, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting services that we are offering has any cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for any website hosted on your virtual server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want different users to be able to establish a connection to the same folder with their own sign-in details, for instance, it will take several clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t encounter any complication, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
