FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transferring files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to access any other folder in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have detailed help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any complication.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts that can access the same folder – if you want several individuals to be able to connect to the same website content with totally different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated plans don’t involve any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to manage your files and to modify your sites without efforts. In case you wish to block the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account completely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which Control Panel you choose during the server order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software suite that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you host or even multiple accounts for one single directory – if you want several people to connect to the content in it using their own log-in details. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks of the mouse through an intuitive web interface.
