FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of exchanging website files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish 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 it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Each of the hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design app pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous Internet sites all at once and to keep them up to date without any efforts. If you give the login credentials to some other individual to carry out a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a given account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you no longer need it – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled different how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will get the chance to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server plans, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you have picked on the order page – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for every site or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you’d like to permit different people to access that folder with their own personal sign-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a website hosting account before or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, as everything is done via a user-friendly interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
