FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of transferring web files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the web hosting that we are offering, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or give other individuals access to separate directories. As soon as a particular job has been accomplished and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will allow you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will 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 plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have selected different educational video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a website hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by our company will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In all cases, you will gain FTP access to the virtual machine without having to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even different FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want different persons to connect to the web content in it with their own set of sign-in details. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks via an intuitive web interface.
