FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to upload and download files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up 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 directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you encounter 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 plan that you have opted for upon signup, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a particular account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT person departs your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help section that contains instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you will get the chance to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server packages, regardless of which Control Panel you have selected during the signup process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your requirements, you can have a separate FTP account for every site or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – if you wish to allow a number of individuals to access that folder using their very own set of login credentials. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account before or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything’s done through an easy-to-work-with GUI and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
