FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging web files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our Linux cloud website hosting service. This functionality is not limited, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can access. Handy functions such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP apps are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve selected during the order process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a certain account any longer, you can simply remove it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT specialist quits the company and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. An elaborate Help database that contains educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have no past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS service that we’re offering includes any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for any site hosted on your virtual machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you join – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to be able to set up an FTP connection to the exact same folder using their very own set of login credentials, for example, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t experience any problem, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
