FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to send files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP 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 program window. All you 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous 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 being able to view any other folder in your hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our Linux cloud services. This service isn’t restricted, so using our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can connect to. Handy functions such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP apps are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not limited this service with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to update its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have created a number of educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from our company, you will be given the possibility to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve picked during the subscription process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Depending on your necessities, you can create a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you would like to allow a number of persons to access that folder with their own personal sign-in details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS, as everything is done through a simple-to-navigate interface and takes only a few clicks.
