FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders 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 limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to view any other directory in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with each of our Linux cloud web hosting. This service is not restricted, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can access. Useful functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP client applications are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to change its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without efforts if you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve shot different instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a website hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company has a limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each site hosted on the VPS, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you order – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different individuals to be able to set up an FTP connection to the very same folder with their own login credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t run into any difficulty, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
