FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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 many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous Internet sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting plans offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to grant other people access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design app pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without efforts. If you give the login details to another individual for a specific task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a couple of clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even different accounts with access to the very same folder – if you would like different people to be able to access the exact same web content with completely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated plans do not have a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to modify your websites without a hitch. If you would like to restrict the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP software apps. Also, we have compiled in-depth help articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers that we’re offering includes any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for each Internet site hosted on your VPS server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several users to set up an FTP connection to the very same directory with their own set of log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t come across any impediment, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
