FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or entire directories 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 set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our shared hosting. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can connect to. Handy options such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP apps are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT expert retires from your company and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An in-depth Help section that contains instructional videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting packages offered by our company includes any limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for any website hosted on your server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different users to be able to connect to the exact same directory with their very own sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a few clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any predicament, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
