FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to access any other content in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer, because we have chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites at once or grant other people access to multiple directories. Once a particular task has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can change the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are quite powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a huge number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to modify it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you have never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check our in-depth instructional video clips, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you order and which Control Panel you select during the signup procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be granted FTP access to the server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software suite which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even multiple FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want different persons to access the content in it with their very own sign-in credentials. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks through a user-friendly graphical interface.
