FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transmitting files between a computer and a web 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, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders 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 one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our Linux shared web hosting. This feature isn’t limited, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP client programs are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have picked upon signup, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a given account any longer, you can just delete it and block persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT person retires from your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An in-depth Help section that contains how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we’re offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick upon signup – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software stack which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have registered or even multiple accounts for a single directory – if you want different persons to be able to access the web content in it with their own set of log-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks through a simple-to-work-with web interface.
