FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transfer website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to view any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has completed their task 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 permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you experience any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an enormous number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth educational video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server configurations, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked on the order form – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Depending on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you want to permit different users to be able to access that folder using their own log-in details. Even if you have never opened a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the virtual machine, as everything’s done via an easy-to-use web-based interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
