FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending website files between a computer and a web server. With 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 PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other directory in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given moment. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t restricted this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without effort if you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created different instructional video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you’ve never used a web hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from our company, you will be given the ability to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS setups, no matter which Control Panel you have selected during the signup process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your demands, you can have a separate FTP account for every site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to allow several people to connect to that folder using their own personal sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on the server, since everything’s done through an easy-to-work-with web interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
