FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transmitting web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other directory in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their job and you do not 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 view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you come across any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you no longer need it – for example, if you have hired a developer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled a number of how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a web hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages offered by our company 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 Virtual Private Server plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the VPS without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software bundle which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want a number of individuals to access the content inside it using their very own sign-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will require no more than several clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-work-with web interface.
