FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for sending web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you 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 used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the cloud hosting that we are offering, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or give other individuals access to separate directories. As soon as a particular task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated service are truly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a huge number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a web hosting account previously, you can watch our comprehensive educational video clips, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which Control Panel you choose during the VPS order procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the virtual server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the software bundle which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even several accounts for a single folder – if you want a number of users to be able to connect to the website content in it with their very own login credentials. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-navigate web-based interface.
