FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux hosting that we are offering, as we have chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites simultaneously or give other persons access to separate directories. Once a particular job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about somebody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you’ve chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a given account any longer, you can simply remove it and block people 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 retires from the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. A detailed Help repository that comprises instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server plans, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve picked during the VPS order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your demands, you can have a separate FTP account for every website or several accounts with access to a given folder – in case you wish to allow different individuals to access that folder with their own sign-in credentials. Even if you have never used a website hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, as everything is done via an easy-to-work-with interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
