FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transmitting website files between a computer and a web 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, while 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 folders 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 of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other directory in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the package that you have picked at signup, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and block persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly useful if you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual leaves your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An in-depth Help repository that comprises educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will have the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS setups, irrespective of which Control Panel you’ve chosen upon signup – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for each site or a number of accounts with access to a given folder – in case you wish to allow a number of individuals to be able to access that folder with their own personal log-in details. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, as everything is done through a time and effort saving graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
