FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of exchanging web files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you 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 used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to view any other folder in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve selected during the subscription process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially useful if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual retires from the firm and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help library that comprises tutorial videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS services offered by us has a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate account for any site hosted on your VPS server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to be able to establish an FTP connection to the same directory using their own login details, for example, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not have any difficulties, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
