FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you 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. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Each of the website hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your personal computer, you will be able to manage numerous websites at once and to keep them up to date without a hitch. In case you give the login info to some other individual to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a few clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a given FTP account or to edit its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to connect to your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled a number of tutorial video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a web hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers offered by us includes any limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for any site hosted on the machine, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want different persons to be able to access the same folder using their own set of login credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have to deal with any predicaments, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
