FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to exchange website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will need 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. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any obstacle.

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 plan that you have opted for upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a specific account any longer, you can simply delete it and block individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a web designer or if an IT specialist exits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. An extensive Help section that includes video tutorials will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll have the possibility to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS setups, regardless of the Control Panel that you have picked upon signup – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can create a separate FTP account for every Internet site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you wish to allow several persons to access that folder with their own personal sign-in details. Even if you have never opened a hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, removing or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, since everything is done through a time and effort saving graphical interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
