FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transferring files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of 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 web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other content in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering, as we’ve chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or give other people access to different folders. Once a specific task has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one click to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts with access to the exact same directory – in case you want different people to be able to access the exact same content with completely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not have any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to modify your sites without efforts. In case you wish to limit the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP software programs. In addition, we’ve compiled detailed help articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS web hosting plans that we’re offering has a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for any website hosted on your virtual machine, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want several users to be able to establish an FTP connection to the same folder using their very own log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not experience any impediment, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
