FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, 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 whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to access any other content in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our Linux website hosting service. This service is not limited, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the folders that they can access. Useful functions such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP client programs are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting service are very powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a vast number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit 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 servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up an account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account before, you can check our comprehensive instructional video clips, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers that we’re offering has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several persons to be able to make an FTP connection to the same folder using their own set of log-in details, for instance, it will take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t experience any complication, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
