FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for exchanging website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make 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 program window. All you have to do 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 many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other directory in the hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you experience any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot a number of educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a web hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS

The virtual private server plans that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you get and which Control Panel you choose during the subscription process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will get FTP access to the virtual server without having to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even several accounts for a single directory – if you want different users to access the web content in it with their very own login details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than several clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface.
