FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you run into any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even different accounts with access to the same folder – if you want different users to be able to access the very same website content with entirely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages don’t include a limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to modify your Internet sites with ease. If you wish to limit the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP programs. In addition, we’ve got in-depth help articles and video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we’re offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you choose upon signup – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the virtual machine without having to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want different persons to access the website content inside it using their very own login details. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks via a simple-to-work-with web-based interface.
