File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most widely used ways to exchange web files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, among them the option to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the perfect solution if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service are stunningly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an immense number of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to update it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you have never opened a web hosting account before, you can check our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will have the opportunity to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked during the VPS order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for every site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – if you wish to allow a number of users to be able to access that folder with their very own log-in details. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account before or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your server, since everything is done through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
