FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transmitting web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need 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. FTP is used 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 designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux web hosting that we offer, as we have decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous sites all at once or give other individuals access to separate folders. Once a particular task has been accomplished and you don’t want that person to be able to access your files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared plans, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even multiple accounts with access to the same directory – if you would like several people to be able to access the same web content with totally different login credentials.

In case you would like to limit the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP software apps. Furthermore, we have compiled elaborate help articles and educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.

This is valid for all VPS plans, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you have chosen during the subscription procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel.

Even if you have never used a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the server, as everything is done via a simple-to-navigate web interface and takes only a few clicks.
