FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transferring files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to see any other folder in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux cloud website hosting packages that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous sites at the same time or provide other individuals with access to multiple folders. As soon as a particular task has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts with access to one and the same folder – if you wish different users to be able to connect to the same content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting don’t have a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your files and to update your websites effortlessly. If you’d like to stop the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP programs. In addition, we’ve prepared elaborate step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting offered by our company has any limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each site hosted on your machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you join – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of individuals to be able to access the very same directory with their own set of log-in details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t experience any complication, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
