FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for sending files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our Linux website hosting packages. This service is not restricted, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks done. In case you hire a web designer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single click through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can access. Useful functions such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP software apps are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not restricted this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without efforts if you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a developer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have prepared different educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages offered by our company includes a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on the VPS, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of persons to be able to make an FTP connection to one and the same folder using their own log-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t have any problem, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
