FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other directory in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have numerous sites at the same time or give other individuals access to different directories. Once a particular task has been fulfilled and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can change the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts that can access the very same directory – in case you wish several persons to be able to connect to the very same content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated packages do not include a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to manage your files and to modify your sites with no effort. If you wish to block the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP software programs. Also, we’ve compiled in-depth help articles and video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

With a virtual private server from our company, you will get the possibility to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected during the order procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for every website or a number of accounts with access to a given folder – in case you want to allow several users to connect to that folder with their own sign-in details. Even if you have never had a website hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your Virtual Private Server, as everything’s done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
