FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transmitting web files between a PC and a server. With 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 main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other folder in the hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a detailed Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you encounter any complications.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve chosen during the signup process, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual exits the firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. An extensive Help repository that includes tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have no prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the option to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, irrespective of the Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the VPS order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – if you want to allow different individuals to access that folder using their very own set of login details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on the VPS, as everything is done through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
