FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred 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 folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given moment. If you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have detailed help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you run into any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t limited this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a given account or to modify its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without any effort if you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a web developer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we have compiled different tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a web hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll get the opportunity to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server plans, irrespective of which Control Panel you’ve chosen during the registration process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for every Internet site or several accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to permit different persons to access that folder using their very own set of login credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a website hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your VPS, as everything is done via a simple-to-use interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
