FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to exchange website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, 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 main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the shared hosting that we’re offering, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites all at once or give other individuals access to different folders. Once a given task has been carried out and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to check the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, 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 before, you can check our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we offer includes any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your virtual server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you join – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to be able to access the same folder with their own set of login details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t experience any difficulty, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
