FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transmit files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without accessing any other directory in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting services. This feature isn’t limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP applications are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have shot a number of video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will be provided with the ability to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can create a separate FTP account for each site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you’d like to allow different individuals to be able to access that folder with their very own set of login details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your server, since everything’s done through a user-friendly interface and takes just a few clicks.
