FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transmitting files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make 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 main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Any of the shared website hosting plans offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other people access to any website in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to run numerous sites all at once and to keep them updated without any effort. If you give the login credentials to another individual to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve picked during the signup process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a certain account any longer, you can simply remove it and stop individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT person exits your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. An extensive Help database that comprises tutorial videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans that we offer has a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for each website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. It also does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want different people to establish a connection to the exact same directory using their very own log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not come across any difficulty, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
