FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to send files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have 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 a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the cloud hosting plans that we are offering, because we have decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can run multiple websites at the same time or grant other individuals access to different directories. Once a particular job has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only a click to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts that can access the same folder – if you would like different people to be able to access the exact same web content with entirely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not involve any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to administer your files and to modify your sites with no effort. In case you’d like to limit the access to your website content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software programs. Also, we have compiled detailed help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

In case you open a VPS plans with us and choose any of the three hosting Control Panels that we offer – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your VPS, since it is part of the standard software package that comes with all virtual servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will allow you to set up as many FTP accounts as you like and to pick what directory each one of them will access. If you wish, you can even create separate FTP accounts for one and the same domain and give several users their own personal login details to access the web content. Each of the 3 hosting Control Panels will give you the chance to create, to modify or to delete an FTP account in several simple steps and with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, so even in case you don’t have any past experience, you will be able to manage an account without effort.
