FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the 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. FTP is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without accessing any other content in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared website hosting that we offer, since we have decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can manage multiple websites all at once or provide other persons with access to separate folders. Once a given job has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can update the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove that account with a few clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting packages, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you have chosen upon signup, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a given account anymore, you can just delete it and stop individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT person exits the company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An elaborate Help repository that comprises tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you purchase and which Control Panel you select on the order form – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for a single folder – if you want several individuals to connect to the content inside it using their very own set of sign-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than several mouse clicks via a user-friendly graphical interface.
