FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without accessing any other directory in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our cloud hosting plans. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can connect to. Useful options such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP software apps are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve selected upon signup, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a given account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT professional leaves the company and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. An elaborate Help database that includes how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers offered by our company includes any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for any site hosted on the VPS server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want several users to set up a connection to the very same folder using their own personal sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take several clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t encounter any difficulties, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
