FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for sending files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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 preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the website hosting that we offer, since we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites at the same time or grant other individuals access to different folders. Once a specific task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting plans, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts that can access the very same folder – in case you want different people to be able to connect to the exact same content with different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t involve a limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to update your websites with no effort. If you want to restrict the access to your website content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account completely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP programs. What’s more, we have compiled elaborate help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you purchase and which Control Panel you choose during the signup procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the software suite that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even multiple accounts for one single directory – in case you want different people to be able to access the web content inside it using their own login details. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse through a user-friendly web interface.
