FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for uploading and downloading files between a computer system 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 will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our shared hosting. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Useful functions such as changing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP software apps are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to update its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a designer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have made a number of instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a web hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

If you open a VPS servers with our company and select any of the three hosting Control Panels that we offer – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, an FTP server will be installed on your machine, since it is an integral part of the basic software bundle that comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with a Control Panel.

Each of the 3 hosting Control Panels will provide you with the chance to set up, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a few simple steps and with no more than several clicks, so even in case you have no past experience, you will be able to manage an account without any effort.
