FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to send web files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish 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 program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our cloud hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so using our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one mouse click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as changing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP applications are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a vast number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. Also, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account before, you can check our comprehensive how-to videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the subscription process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In all cases, you will get FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software stack which comes with the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have or even different accounts for a single folder – in case you want different persons to connect to the website content in it using their own log-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks through an easy-to-use GUI.
