FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, 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 will need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without accessing any other folder in your hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have elaborate help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any predicament.

FTP Accounts in VPS

The virtual private server plans that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you select during the server order procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you will get FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even separate FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want several persons to be able to access the website content inside it using their own personal log-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few mouse clicks through a simple-to-work-with graphical interface.
