What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used ways to transmit files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There are a number of benefits of using FTP, among them the option to resume a download/upload when there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server
plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even different accounts for one single directory – in case you want different individuals to be able to connect to the web content in it with their very own login details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks via a simple-to-use web interface.
