FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do 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 used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with any of our shared services. This service is not restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Handy options such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client programs are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a restriction on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to modify its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have compiled different educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting services offered by our company includes any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want different individuals to make a connection to the very same folder using their own log-in details, for instance, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not come across any problem, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
