FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread methods of sending web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There are several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have comprehensive help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any difficulties.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company has a limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for each website hosted on your machine, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you will select when you sign up – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want a number of users to set up a connection to one and the same directory using their very own set of log-in details, for instance, it’ll take several clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them.
