FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transfer files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main 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 used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other folder in your hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared website hosting offered by us, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous websites simultaneously or give other people access to different directories. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you would not like that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even separate accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you want several persons to be able to connect to the very same website content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans do not include any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to update your sites without a hitch. If you want to block 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 few clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP apps. Also, we’ve prepared elaborate help articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which package you get and which Control Panel you pick upon registration – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will receive FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want a number of individuals to be able to access the website content inside it with their own sign-in details. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks through a simple-to-use interface.
