File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most famous means of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will handle all the rest. There’re several benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume a download/upload when there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best option if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud website hosting that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run multiple sites simultaneously or grant other people access to different directories. As soon as a given task has been completed and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same directory – if you would like different individuals to be able to access the very same content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated service don’t have any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your website files and to update your sites without a hitch. In case you want to limit the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP client programs. In addition, we have compiled detailed help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS hosting service that we’re offering includes any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any Internet site hosted on the VPS, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several persons to be able to connect to the very same directory with their own sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t run into any problem, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
