Learn more about what FTP really is, what it can do and what is the advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used methods for exchanging web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will take care of the rest. There are several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best solution especially when you need 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 website content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with any of our Linux website hosting

This service isn’t restricted, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a certain FTP account or to modify its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you do not require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve prepared different how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages offered by us will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you buy and which Control Panel you choose during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll be given FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even multiple accounts for one single folder – if you want different individuals to be able to access the website content inside it with their very own personal log-in credentials. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a few mouse clicks through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface.
