FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select 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 one can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other folder in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux web hosting offered by our company, as we have chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites at the same time or grant other people access to separate directories. Once a given task has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t restricted this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts if you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have prepared different how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you have never used a hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you get and which Control Panel you pick during the order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll be granted FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software stack that is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want different persons to access the website content in it with their very own set of log-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than several mouse clicks via an easy-to-navigate GUI.
