FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transfer web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories 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 restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Each of the hosting packages offered by us will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other people with access to any site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them updated without a hitch. In case you give the login information to some other person to do a specific task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this feature with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a particular account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve made different educational video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

In case you open a VPS web hosting plans with us and choose any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we’re offering – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your VPS, since it is an essential part of the default software suite that comes with all VPSs ordered with a Control Panel. This will allow you to set up as many FTP accounts as you need and to specify which directory each one of them can access. If you want, you can even create multiple FTP accounts for the very same domain name and give a number of users their own personal login details to connect to the website content. Each of the 3 hosting Control Panels will offer you the option to create, to modify or to delete an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with less than several clicks, so even if you don’t have any previous experience, you will be able to administer an FTP account with ease.
