FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to send website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with any of our cloud website hosting packages. This service is not limited, so with our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can access. Useful functions such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP client programs are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a particular account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you do not require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a designer who is done with the website and you do not want them to access your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected a number of video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from our company, you will be given the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS setups, no matter the Control Panel that you’ve picked on the order page – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you want to allow different users to connect to that folder with their own log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, since everything’s done via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
