File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most popular methods of transmitting files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will handle all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal solution in case you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want different people to access the exact same directory with their own personal sign-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them.
