FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main 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 one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Any of the cloud web hosting packages offered by our company will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any website in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple sites all at once and to keep them updated without a hitch. If you give the login information to some other person to carry out a certain task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a particular FTP account or to modify its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort if you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we offer has a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for each website hosted on your server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you sign up – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want a number of people to access the same directory with their own log-in credentials, for example, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not experience any complication, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
