FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other content in the web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what files and folders each account can access. There’s 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 given FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you come across any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the package that you’ve chosen upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can create as many accounts as you need from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a particular account anymore, you can simply remove it and stop individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT expert departs the firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. A comprehensive Help database that contains how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we offer has a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you join – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, 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 people to be able to establish a connection to the exact same directory with their own personal log-in details, for example, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not come across any impediment, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
