FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have 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. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux shared web hosting packages that we are offering, because we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple sites simultaneously or provide other individuals with access to different folders. As soon as a certain task has been completed and you do not want that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting packages, will allow you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change 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 instance, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created different how-to video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll be provided with the opportunity to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS setups, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ve selected during the server order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to allow several people to be able to connect to that folder with their very own sign-in details. Even if you’ve never used a hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your server, since everything is done via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks.
