FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you encounter any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting numerous Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a hosting account previously, you can check our in-depth how-to videos, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll be given the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server plans, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you have chosen during the server order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for each site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to permit different individuals to be able to access that folder using their own set of sign-in details. Even if you’ve never used a website hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, as everything is done through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
