FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to upload and download files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to view any other content in the hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the cloud hosting plans offered by us, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can manage multiple Internet sites at once or give other individuals access to different directories. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can update the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about someone using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you have opted for during the subscription process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and block persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT person retires from your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help repository that includes instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers that we’re offering has any cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an account for each site hosted on your machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you order – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want a number of individuals to be able to set up a connection to one and the same directory using their own personal login details, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t need to deal with any impediments, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
