FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transmitting web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection 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 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. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without accessing any other folder in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Any of the web hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other people access to any site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software app pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to maintain numerous sites at the same time and to update them without efforts. If you give the login credentials to some other person to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not set a restriction on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without effort if you do not require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your website files anymore. For your convenience, we have shot different educational video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a web hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you buy and which Control Panel you pick during the order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software suite which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even multiple accounts for a single directory – if you want a number of people to be able to access the website content in it using their own personal log-in details. With any of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account requires no more than several clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-navigate interface.
