FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of sending files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without accessing any other content in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Any of the shared web hosting plans that we are offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to give other people access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design software app pre-installed on your home PC, you will be able to maintain numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any efforts. If you give the login information to some other individual for a specific task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without effort in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have made different video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will get the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ve selected on the order page – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – if you’d like to allow different people to access that folder with their very own sign-in details. Even if you have never had a web hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your server, as everything’s done through a simple-to-navigate web interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
