FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transfer files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have 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 preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to see any other folder in the website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Each of the hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to grant other persons access to any website in your website hosting account. If you have a web design software program installed on your computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple websites all at once and to keep them updated effortlessly. If you provide the login credentials to another individual to perform a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you do not need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve prepared a number of instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts if you’ve never used a hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you buy and which Control Panel you choose during the subscription procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will receive FTP access to the machine without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the software bundle that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even separate accounts for one single directory – in case you want different users to be able to connect to the web content in it using their very own set of login credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than several clicks through a simple-to-use web interface.
