FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for exchanging website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without accessing any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux hosting that we’re offering, because we have decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can manage numerous sites simultaneously or provide other people with access to multiple directories. Once a given job has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared plans, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve opted for during the order process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can create as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT individual departs your company and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help section that comprises tutorial videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers offered by us includes any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an account for any website hosted on the server, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you register – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to connect to one and the same directory using their very own set of login details, for example, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not come across any impediment, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
