FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for exchanging files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This functionality is not limited, so with our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can connect to. Useful options such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP apps are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve chosen upon registration, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a specific account any longer, you can simply remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a web designer or if an IT expert leaves the company and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. A comprehensive Help repository that includes how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be provided with the possibility to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server packages, regardless of the Control Panel that you have selected during the registration procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Based on your needs, you can set up a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to allow several people to connect to that folder with their own log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the server, as everything’s done via a simple-to-navigate web-based interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
