FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to transfer website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without accessing any other directory in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the cloud hosting offered by our company, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous Internet sites at once or grant other persons access to different folders. Once a particular job has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to connect to your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected a number of tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you will be given the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, irrespective of which Control Panel you’ve chosen during the order procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for each site or a number of accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you’d like to permit a number of people to access that folder with their very own set of log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account previously or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your machine, since everything is done through an intuitive GUI and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
