FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transferring web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do 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 preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other directory in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an extensive Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you experience any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting lots of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to update it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up an account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you have never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check out our exhaustive how-to video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

Based on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a given folder – if you would like to allow a number of individuals to connect to that folder using their own personal login credentials. Even if you have never had a hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything’s done through an easy-to-use graphical interface and takes just a few mouse clicks.
