FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of transmitting web files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need 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. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Any of the website hosting plans that we offer will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your hosting account. If you have a web design program installed on your personal computer, you will be able to manage numerous websites all at once and to update them without effort. In case you provide the login credentials to another individual to carry out a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are astonishingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting many websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check our elaborate instructional videos, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we are offering has any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an account for each Internet site hosted on your virtual machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you will select when you subscribe – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several people to be able to establish an FTP connection to the very same folder with their own personal log-in details, for instance, it’ll take several clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not come across any impediment, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
