FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select 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 single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without accessing any other folder in your website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the cloud web hosting offered by us, as we have chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. As soon as a specific job has been fulfilled and you would not like that person to be able to access your web files anymore, you can change the password for the FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are pretty powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting numerous Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up the account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you have never had a web hosting account previously, you can check out our detailed tutorial videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll be provided with the possibility to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, irrespective of which Control Panel you’ve chosen during the subscription procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you want to permit different users to access that folder using their very own set of login details. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the virtual server, since everything’s done through an easy-to-use graphical interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
