FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need 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 a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other content in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have detailed help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you experience any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll 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 plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a website hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans offered by our company will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick during the VPS order procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll be granted FTP access to the VPS server without having to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software suite that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you own or even multiple FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want several individuals to access the web content in it using their very own personal sign-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use GUI.
