FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of exchanging files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to view any other folder in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with each of our cloud hosting. This functionality is not restricted, so using our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the folders that they can access. Handy options such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software programs are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not put a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected different educational videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select on the order form – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will acquire FTP access to the virtual server without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software stack which comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even different accounts for one single folder – if you want a number of persons to be able to connect to the website content in it with their own set of sign-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than several mouse clicks via a user-friendly interface.
