FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widespread means of transmitting web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing FTP, among them the ability to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution especially if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of third-party software.

All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can create as many accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a specific account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT person exits the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will be provided with the option to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you have chosen upon registration – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for every site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you wish to permit several people to connect to that folder using their own log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the server, since everything is done through a time and effort saving web interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
