FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need 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 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 example, can complete their job without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Any of the hosting plans that we offer will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to grant other people access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design app pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run numerous sites at the same time and to update them with no effort. In case you give the login credentials to some other individual to do a given task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are very powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting plenty of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a hosting account before, you can check our elaborate instructional video clips, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS service offered by our company has a limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any site hosted on the VPS server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want several individuals to be able to establish a connection to the same folder using their own set of log-in details, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not have any complication, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
