FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transmitting website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to view any other folder in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you experience any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve opted for upon registration, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a particular account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT individual retires from your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. An in-depth Help section that contains tutorial videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS hosting service that we’re offering has any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for each site hosted on the virtual server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you sign up – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of people to be able to establish an FTP connection to one and the same folder with their own personal login details, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not encounter any impediment, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
