FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for sending website files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to see any other folder in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux shared service that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or provide other individuals with access to different directories. As soon as a specific task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can just delete the account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting packages, will allow you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one click to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve opted for on the order form, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a given account any longer, you can simply remove it and stop individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a designer or if an IT person exits your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help section that contains how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by our company will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the server order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will gain FTP access to the VPS server without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have or even multiple FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want several people to be able to access the content inside it using their own sign-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate interface.
