FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of sending web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need 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 used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other directory in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. If you do not want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve picked upon signup, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a particular account anymore, you can simply remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially useful if you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual exits the firm and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help library that includes instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you get and which Control Panel you select during the signup procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you will receive FTP access to the server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the software suite which is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even separate accounts for one single directory – in case you want different people to access the content inside it using their own sign-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few mouse clicks through an easy-to-navigate GUI.
