FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole 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 of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other folder in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you experience any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you have opted for on the order form, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a particular account any longer, you can just delete it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT expert departs the firm and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An extensive Help section that includes how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you get and which Control Panel you choose during the order procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will obtain FTP access to the server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for a single directory – in case you want different users to access the content inside it with their very own personal login details. With each of the Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-use interface.
