FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for exchanging web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the web hosting offered by our company, since we have decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run multiple websites simultaneously or give other people access to separate directories. Once a certain task has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several clicks and quit worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even separate accounts that can access the exact same directory – in case you want several people to be able to access the same content with totally different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers do not include a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to modify your websites without effort. In case you’d like to limit the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP software applications. In addition, we’ve compiled exhaustive help articles and how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers offered by our company 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 Internet site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it does not matter which Control Panel you will select when you subscribe – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to access the very same folder using their own log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have any difficulties, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
