FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to send web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need 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 plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared website hosting that we are offering, as we have decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can have multiple Internet sites at the same time or provide other people with access to different directories. Once a given task has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. 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 Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you’ve selected upon registration, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and prevent persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist departs your firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. A detailed Help repository that contains educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from us, you will be given the possibility to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server packages, no matter which Control Panel you have chosen during the signup procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Based on your requirements, you can create a different FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you want to permit different individuals to be able to access that folder with their own sign-in details. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on the virtual server, since everything is done through a simple-to-navigate interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
