FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to see any other content in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our Linux web hosting services. This feature is not restricted, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can access. Useful functions such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP client applications are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t put a restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without any effort if you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web designer who is done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have shot different instructional videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you have never used a website hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will be provided with the option to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve selected during the order procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your needs, you can create a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you want to permit a number of persons to access that folder with their very own set of log-in credentials. Even if you have never used a website hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the server, since everything is done through a simple-to-navigate interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
