FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select 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 single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we are offering, because we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run multiple sites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a certain task has been carried out and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can modify the password for the FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you wish several individuals to be able to connect to the same website content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not include any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to modify your Internet sites without efforts. In case you want to restrict the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP software apps. In addition, we have compiled in-depth help articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you get and which Control Panel you choose during the subscription process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll have FTP access to the virtual server without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even multiple FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want different people to be able to access the content inside it using their very own set of sign-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than several mouse clicks through an intuitive web interface.
