FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of sending website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you 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 preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without accessing any other content in the hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the shared website hosting plans offered by our company, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous websites all at once or give other people access to different folders. Once a specific job has been done and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can update the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anyone accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are truly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting plenty of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never had a hosting account previously, you can watch our comprehensive video tutorials, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick on the order page – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software suite which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even separate FTP accounts for a single folder – if you want a number of individuals to be able to connect to the content in it using their very own set of login details. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of mouse clicks through an easy-to-navigate web-based interface.
