FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging web files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the shared hosting packages that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can run numerous sites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to multiple folders. Once a given task has been fulfilled and you do not want that person to be able to access your web files anymore, you can update the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting packages, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you’ve chosen upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can simply remove it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or if an IT specialist exits your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help repository that contains how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll get the possibility to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, regardless of the Control Panel that you have chosen on the order page – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your requirements, you can set up a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you would like to permit several users to access that folder using their own log-in details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your virtual server, since everything’s done through a user-friendly interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
