FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used means for transferring web files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best solution if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to resort to third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single 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 in-depth help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any obstacle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS web hosting service
that we are offering has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on the server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several persons to be able to access the very same directory with their own set of log-in credentials, for example, it will take several clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any problems, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
