FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have 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 set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to access any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared plans that we offer, since we have chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites at the same time or grant other individuals access to separate directories. Once a given task has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are incredibly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a huge number of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. If you have never had a hosting account before, you can check our in-depth educational video clips, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans that we offer has any limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an account for any site hosted on the machine, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you join – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several users to make a connection to the exact same directory using their own login credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any complications, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
