FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP software 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 displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared web hosting packages that we’re offering, as we have decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can maintain multiple sites at once or provide other individuals with access to multiple directories. As soon as a given job has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve selected on the order page, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account any longer, you can simply delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is especially useful if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT person retires from the firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. An exhaustive Help library that includes educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll be provided with the possibility to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, regardless of the Control Panel that you have selected on the order form – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – if you want to permit a number of people to access that folder using their own personal log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a website hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, since everything’s done through an intuitive web interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
