FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transferring files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol 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 complete their job without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the cloud website hosting that we’re offering, since we have decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous websites at the same time or provide other people with access to separate folders. Once a given job has been completed and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are truly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting multiple sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. 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 each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a web hosting account previously, you can check out our detailed how-to videos, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS hosting plans that we’re offering has any cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate FTP account for each site hosted on your virtual machine, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you join – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to be able to establish an FTP connection to one and the same folder using their very own set of login details, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t experience any difficulty, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
