FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories 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 restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to view any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our cloud hosting. This service isn’t limited, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just a click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Useful functions such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP clients are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are truly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a vast number of sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. If you have never had a web hosting account before, you can check our detailed tutorial videos, which are available in the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the VPS web hosting offered by our company has any limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to make a connection to one and the same directory with their very own set of login credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have to deal with any predicaments, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
