FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transmitting web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without accessing any other content in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Each of the website hosting packages that we’re offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application installed on your home computer, you will be able to maintain multiple websites at the same time and to keep them up to date without any efforts. If you provide the login details to some other individual to perform a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are rather powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting many Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can check out our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting packages offered by us includes a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on the VPS, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you join – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of individuals to be able to establish a connection to one and the same folder using their own set of login details, for example, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t experience any impediment, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
