FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Any of the cloud hosting plans that we are offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app installed on your PC, you will be able to run numerous websites at the same time and to update them without efforts. In case you provide the login credentials to another individual to do a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are very powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting lots of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to edit it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we’re offering includes a limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on the VPS server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you register – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different users to establish a connection to the same folder using their own log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t experience any impediment, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
