FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of sending website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an extensive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve opted for at signup, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account any longer, you can simply remove it and prevent persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT specialist leaves the firm and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An elaborate Help database that comprises instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you get and which Control Panel you select during the order procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will acquire FTP access to the virtual server without having to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even different accounts for a single directory – in case you want a number of persons to connect to the web content in it using their very own sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few mouse clicks via an easy-to-use graphical interface.
