FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without accessing any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our web hosting. This service is not restricted, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the folders that they can connect to. Useful options such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP clients are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t restricted this functionality with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular account or to update its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a designer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot different how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease in case you have never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

If you open a VPS hosting plans with our company and choose any of the three Control Panels that we offer – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your VPS, since it’s an integral part of the standard software bundle that comes with all virtual servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will permit you to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like and to specify which directory each one of them can connect to. If you want, you can even create several accounts for one and the same domain and give different people their very own personal login details to connect to the website content. Each of the three hosting Control Panels will give you the ability to set up, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with less than a few mouse clicks, so even if you do not have previous experience, you’ll be able to manage an account in a seamless fashion.
