FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to transmit website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have 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 a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have in-depth help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have opted for on the order form, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual retires from your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An in-depth Help library that contains instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we’re offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which Control Panel you pick on the order page – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you will get FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software bundle that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even several FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want a number of people to connect to the web content inside it using their own personal log-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-navigate web-based interface.
