FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used methods of sending web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux web hosting that we’re offering, since we’ve chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can manage numerous websites at once or give other individuals access to separate directories. As soon as a certain task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can modify the password for the specific FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS offered by our company has any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate FTP account for each website hosted on your virtual machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you register – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to set up a connection to one and the same directory using their very own login details, for instance, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any difficulties, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
