FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for sending website files between a computer and a server. With 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 PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without accessing any other content in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you encounter any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts that can access the same folder – if you would like different individuals to be able to connect to the very same web content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting packages don’t have any restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to modify your Internet sites without a hitch. In case you want to limit the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP software programs. What’s more, we’ve compiled exhaustive step-by-step articles and educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll be given the possibility to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server configurations, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you have picked during the server order process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can have a different FTP account for every Internet site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you want to allow several users to be able to access that folder with their own set of log-in details. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, as everything’s done through an easy-to-use web interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
