FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other directory in the website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our Linux shared web hosting packages. This service is not limited, so using our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what folders they can access. Useful functions such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP apps are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the package that you’ve selected upon signup, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a specific account any longer, you can simply delete it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT expert leaves the company and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. An elaborate Help repository that includes video tutorials will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will get the option to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you have picked during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you would like to permit several people to connect to that folder using their own log-in credentials. Even if you have never had a web hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your server, as everything’s done through a user-friendly web interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
