FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular means for exchanging website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There are several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Each of the website hosting packages that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any website in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous websites at the same time and to keep them up to date with ease. If you provide the login information to some other person to carry out a certain task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the subscription procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you will get FTP access to the virtual server without installing any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even several FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want different people to connect to the content in it using their own log-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of mouse clicks via a simple-to-work-with interface.
