FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the 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 limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other content in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Any of the cloud website hosting plans offered by us 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 give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application installed on your home computer, you will be able to administer multiple websites all at once and to keep them up to date without any efforts. If you give the login information to some other person to perform a given task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting are very powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting many Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if needed. 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 PC, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account previously, you can check our comprehensive video tutorials, which are available in the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company includes a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on the server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, 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 a number of persons to be able to make an FTP connection to the same folder using their own login details, for instance, it will take a few clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any obstacles, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
