FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread means for transmitting files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There are several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart an upload/download if there is some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a certain account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you do not require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have selected a number of video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a web hosting package before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the Linux VPS web hosting packages
that we’re offering has any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on the virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you order – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several people to make a connection to the exact same directory using their own set of log-in details, for example, it will take a few clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any complications, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
