FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of sending web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without accessing any other folder in your web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have detailed help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we are offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which Control Panel you select during the subscription procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you will acquire FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software stack which is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even several accounts for one single directory – if you want a number of people to connect to the content inside it using their very own set of log-in credentials. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than several clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-use interface.
