FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for exchanging website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the 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 used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Any of the hosting plans offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to run numerous sites at the same time and to keep them up to date effortlessly. In case you provide the login info to another individual to do a specific task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have selected during the subscription process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a given account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT person retires from your company and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. An in-depth Help database that contains how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS service that we are offering includes a limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for any site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you sign up – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want different people to establish an FTP connection to the same folder with their very own login details, for example, it’ll take several clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you will not need to deal with any impediments, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
