FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of sending web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like 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 displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you 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 plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple Internet sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver 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 want with any of the Linux shared hosting packages that we are offering, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites at the same time or give other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a particular job has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same folder – in case you want several individuals to be able to access the same web content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages do not include a restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to update your Internet sites without effort. In case you’d like to limit the access to your web content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account completely with no more than a few mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP software apps. In addition, we’ve got detailed help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we offer has any limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on the VPS, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several users to establish an FTP connection to the exact same directory with their very own set of sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not encounter any problems, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
