FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send web files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux website hosting that we’re offering, since we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can maintain multiple websites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. As soon as a particular task has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password for the specific FTP account or you can just delete that account with several clicks and quit worrying about anybody using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated services are extremely powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting multiple Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Also, you can set up an account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you have never had a hosting account previously, you can watch our in-depth educational videos, which are available in the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting that we offer includes any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on the VPS server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want a number of individuals to set up an FTP connection to one and the same folder using their very own sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not have any problem, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
