FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other content in your web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our shared website hosting plans. This functionality is not limited, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks done. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy options such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP programs are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve created a number of instructional videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll be provided with the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the subscription procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your needs, you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you wish to permit several persons to be able to connect to that folder using their very own set of login credentials. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your virtual server, since everything’s done via an easy-to-use interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
