FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transmitting website files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make 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 program window. All you will have 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 numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to see any other directory in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have exhaustive help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not set a restriction on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you do not require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve made a number of how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans that we are offering includes a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for any site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you order – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to access the same directory with their own personal login credentials, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t experience any complication, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
