FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have detailed help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have picked at signup, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account any longer, you can just delete it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT person retires from your company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An exhaustive Help repository that contains how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick upon signup – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you will be given FTP access to the machine without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software bundle which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even several FTP accounts for a single directory – in case you want several individuals to be able to access the content in it with their own set of login credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of mouse clicks through an intuitive interface.
