FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for exchanging web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client 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 main program window. All you will have to do 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 used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other directory in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our cloud website hosting. This functionality is not restricted, so using our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP apps are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a given FTP account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you do not need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is done with the site and you don’t want them to connect to your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have selected a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a website hosting service 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 Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the registration procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you’ll have FTP access to the machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the software bundle which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even several accounts for a single directory – if you want several people to be able to connect to the website content in it with their own login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks through a simple-to-use interface.
