FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most commonly used means of exchanging files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP client software such as 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 itself will deal with all the rest. There are a number of pros of using FTP, among them the option to resume an upload/download in case there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. If you don’t want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any impediments.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts that can access the same directory – in case you would like several individuals to be able to connect to the same content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans

This is valid for all VPS setups, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve chosen on the order page – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for each website or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to allow different users to access that folder with their own personal login details. Even if you have never used a website hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS server, since everything is done through an intuitive web interface and takes just a few clicks.
