FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of sending web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to see any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Any of the cloud hosting packages that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application installed on your computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple Internet sites all at once and to keep them updated without efforts. In case you give the login details to some other person to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you no longer need it – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your files anymore. For your convenience, we have created different video tutorials, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you have never used a website hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we are offering has any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each website hosted on the server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several individuals to make an FTP connection to the very same folder with their own personal log-in credentials, for example, it will take several clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not experience any problem, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
