FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to send web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the 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 many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our hosting services. This service is not restricted, so with our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP software applications are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts that can access the same directory – if you want several people to be able to access the very same website content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting don’t include a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to modify your websites without effort. If you’d like to restrict the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP clients. What’s more, we’ve prepared comprehensive step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS services offered by our company includes any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on your server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you order – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want several persons to establish an FTP connection to the very same directory using their own set of log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not encounter any complications, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
