FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to view any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you like at any given moment. If you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any predicaments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a certain FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the site and you do not want them to access your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot a number of video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a website hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

If you open a VPS plans with us and select any of the 3 Control Panels that we’re offering – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your VPS, since it is an integral part of the default software pack that comes with all VPSs ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will allow you to set up as many FTP accounts as you want and to select which directory each of them can access. If you want, you can even set up multiple accounts for one and the same domain and give a number of persons their very own set of sign-in credentials to connect to the web content. Each of the three hosting Control Panels will provide you with the ability to create, to edit or to delete an FTP account in several simple steps and with less than a few clicks of the mouse, so even in case you do not possess any past experience, you’ll be able to manage an account with ease.
