FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to transfer website files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other directory in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our shared hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just a click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can access. Handy options such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP client programs are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected different how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which package you get and which hosting Control Panel you pick upon registration – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you will get FTP access to the VPS without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software suite that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even separate accounts for a single folder – in case you want different people to connect to the content in it using their own set of log-in details. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks through a simple-to-navigate interface.
