FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to transmit web files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up 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 main program window. All you will 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. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our Linux cloud hosting services. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks completed. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the directories that they can access. Handy functions such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software programs are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you have selected during the order process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a specific account any longer, you can simply delete it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT individual exits your firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An elaborate Help section that comprises how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

The virtual private server packages offered by us will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which Control Panel you select during the subscription procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you host or even several accounts for a single folder – in case you want a number of persons to connect to the website content in it using their own personal login details. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of mouse clicks via a simple-to-use web-based interface.
