FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transmitting website files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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 will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our web hosting plans. This service is not restricted, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP programs are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a huge number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a web hosting account previously, you can check out our in-depth video tutorials, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS hosting plans that we’re offering has any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on your VPS server, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of users to be able to set up a connection to the exact same folder with their very own log-in credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have any complications, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
