FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transferring website files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown 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 select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to view any other directory in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have opted for at signup, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account any longer, you can simply delete it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert departs the firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. A detailed Help section that includes instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll be given the ability to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you’ve chosen during the registration process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Depending on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for every Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you’d like to allow several people to be able to access that folder using their very own set of log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never used a hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the virtual machine, since everything is done through a simple-to-use graphical interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
