FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you 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 used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting 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 accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you run into any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the package that you have picked on the order form, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account any longer, you can simply delete it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT person exits your company and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. An extensive Help repository that includes how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we are offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select during the subscription procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll gain FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even separate accounts for one single directory – in case you want a number of persons to access the content in it using their own personal log-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than several clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface.
