FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to view any other directory in your website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared packages offered by our company, since we have decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can manage numerous websites all at once or give other persons access to different directories. Once a given task has been completed and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove that account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single mouse click to administer various 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 Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a huge number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a hosting account before, you can check our comprehensive educational video clips, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages offered by us includes any limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for each site hosted on the machine, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of persons to connect to the very same folder with their very own set of sign-in details, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have any problems, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
