FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to send files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to view any other folder in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even separate accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you want different persons to be able to access the exact same web content with completely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don’t involve a limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your Internet sites with ease. If you’d like to restrict the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP client programs. In addition, we have compiled exhaustive help articles and how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS service offered by our company includes a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate account for any site hosted on your VPS server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want different people to establish an FTP connection to one and the same folder using their very own login credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have any obstacle, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
