FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for uploading and downloading website files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol 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 folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other folder in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud hosting service that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can have multiple sites simultaneously or provide other people with access to different directories. As soon as a given job has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting packages, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a particular FTP account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you do not require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have prepared a number of educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting package 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 are offering – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is part of the default software package that comes with all servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will allow you to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish and to pick the directory that each one of them can connect to. If you want, you can even create multiple FTP accounts for one and the same domain and give different people their very own personal sign-in credentials to access the website content. Each of the three hosting Control Panels will offer you the option to set up, to edit or to delete an FTP account in several easy steps and with less than a few clicks, so even if you do not have prior experience, you’ll be able to manage an FTP account without a hitch.
