FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for uploading and downloading website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do 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 a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without accessing any other content in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the cloud web hosting plans that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can have multiple Internet sites at the same time or give other individuals access to multiple directories. As soon as a certain task has been completed and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans are exceptionally powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check our comprehensive educational videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS hosting plans that we offer includes any limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the VPS, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you join – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of individuals to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory with their own set of sign-in details, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any impediment, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
