FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do 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 lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without accessing any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve selected at signup, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual quits the firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. An in-depth Help repository that includes educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not possess past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which hosting Control Panel you pick at signup – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you will receive FTP access to the server without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even multiple FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want several people to be able to connect to the web content inside it with their own personal sign-in details. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks via a user-friendly GUI.
