FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to upload and download web files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other directory in the hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux shared hosting that we offer, because we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can have multiple websites simultaneously or grant other persons access to separate directories. As soon as a certain job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can update the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you have opted for upon signup, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a specific account anymore, you can simply remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT person leaves your firm and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. An extensive Help library that contains educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will be given the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve picked during the order procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a specific folder – if you want to permit different persons to be able to access that folder with their own set of sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never used a hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or editing any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything’s done via an intuitive GUI and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
