FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transmitting files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or entire 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 instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other directory in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Any of the web hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other people access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous websites all at once and to update them with ease. If you give the login information to some other individual for a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a certain account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created a number of educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select during the server order procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll gain FTP access to the VPS without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software bundle which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even multiple accounts for a single folder – in case you want a number of users to access the website content in it with their own sign-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
