FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for exchanging files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will 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. File Transfer Protocol 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 directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our Linux cloud packages. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can connect to. Useful functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP programs are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are very powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting numerous sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never had a hosting account before, you can watch our detailed instructional video clips, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be provided with the opportunity to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, no matter the Control Panel that you’ve selected at signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your needs, you can set up a different FTP account for each Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to permit a number of users to be able to access that folder with their very own set of log-in details. Even if you have never had a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, since everything is done via an easy-to-work-with web interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
