FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for sending web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to view any other folder in the website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux hosting packages that we offer, since we have chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can run numerous Internet sites all at once or provide other individuals with access to multiple directories. As soon as a specific task has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can change the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have picked during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account any longer, you can simply remove it and block persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is especially useful if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT specialist retires from your firm and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help library that comprises instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which Control Panel you pick during the signup process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will have FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software stack which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even different accounts for one single directory – in case you want different individuals to access the web content inside it with their own login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a few mouse clicks via an easy-to-use web-based interface.
