FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transferring website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you experience any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we have not put a restriction on this functionality with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease if you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For your convenience, we have selected different how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a website hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you will have the ability to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, no matter the Control Panel that you’ve selected during the signup procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your demands, you can have a different FTP account for each site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to permit different people to be able to connect to that folder using their very own set of log-in credentials. Even if you have never opened a hosting account before or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, since everything is done through a simple-to-work-with web-based interface and takes just a few mouse clicks.
