FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for uploading and downloading files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other directory in your website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared hosting offered by us, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage numerous websites all at once or give other individuals access to different folders. Once a particular task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting packages, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t restricted this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have selected a number of tutorial videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you’ve never used a web hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will be given the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ve chosen during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can set up a different FTP account for every Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you’d like to permit different individuals to access that folder using their very own log-in details. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything is done via an easy-to-navigate GUI and takes only a few clicks.
