FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to exchange files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other directory in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the hosting that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run multiple sites at the same time or give other people access to different folders. As soon as a specific task has been done and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only a click to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t limited this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. 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 have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a given FTP account or to modify its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created different educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a web hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll have the possibility to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you have chosen during the signup process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a given folder – in case you would like to permit several people to connect to that folder using their own log-in details. Even if you have never used a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, since everything’s done through an easy-to-navigate interface and takes just a few clicks.
