FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for uploading and downloading files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do 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 restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other directory in your hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the VPS services that we’re offering has a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for any website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you register – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of people to make an FTP connection to the same directory with their very own login details, for example, it will take several clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t need to deal with any impediments, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
