FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transfer web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up 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 program window. All you have 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 preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other folder in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Any of the website hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design program pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous websites all at once and to update them effortlessly. If you give the login details to some other person to carry out a certain task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not set a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to update its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your files any longer. For your convenience, we have made different how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will be given the chance to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS server packages, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you have selected during the server order procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can set up a different FTP account for each Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to allow different individuals to access that folder using their own set of log-in details. Even if you have never had a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your VPS server, since everything is done through a time and effort saving web interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
