FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make 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 whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to see any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared web hosting packages that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can maintain numerous Internet sites at once or provide other individuals with access to different directories. As soon as a certain task has been done and you would not like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can change the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only a click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t limited this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a certain account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you no longer require it – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve prepared a number of instructional video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you have never used a web hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from our company, you will be given the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, irrespective of which Control Panel you have picked during the signup process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you want to allow different people to connect to that folder with their own personal login credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account before or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on your VPS, as everything is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and takes just a couple of clicks.
