FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transmitting web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection 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 whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting packages that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design software program installed on your home computer, you will be able to administer multiple websites simultaneously and to keep them updated with no effort. In case you give the login details to some other individual to carry out a specific task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you no longer require it – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected a number of video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a web hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we are offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the registration procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll obtain FTP access to the server without having to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software bundle which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even separate FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want several users to access the web content inside it with their very own personal sign-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-use GUI.
