FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to transmit files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection 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 folders in either direction is to mark 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 of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our Linux cloud website hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks done. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what directories they can access. Handy options such as changing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP client applications 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 semi-dedicated server plan that you have chosen during the registration process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and block persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT individual leaves your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An in-depth Help library that comprises tutorial videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

The virtual private server plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you order and which Control Panel you pick at signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will be given FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without installing any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software stack which comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have or even multiple FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want different users to be able to connect to the web content in it with their very own personal log-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than several clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-work-with web interface.
