FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect 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. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can set up 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 being able to view any other folder in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software application installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them with no effort. In case you give the login details to another person for a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve chosen during the order process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a given account anymore, you can simply delete it and block persons who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is particularly handy if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT professional departs your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. A detailed Help repository that comprises educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans that we offer has a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each Internet site hosted on your VPS, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several individuals to be able to establish a connection to one and the same folder using their own login details, for example, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any problem, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
