FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for transferring website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other folder in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each of the cloud hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design program pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to maintain numerous sites simultaneously and to update them with ease. If you provide the login details to some other individual to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are stunningly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting lots of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our elaborate educational video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll have the chance to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you have picked during the subscription process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for every site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a given folder – in case you want to allow several users to be able to access that folder using their very own set of log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your Virtual Private Server, since everything is done via a simple-to-work-with web interface and takes just a few clicks.
