FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main 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 used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to view any other content in the hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our Linux website hosting. This service isn’t limited, so using our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your web-connected tasks done. If you hire a developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and the folders that they can access. Useful functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP client applications are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a given FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to connect to your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled a number of video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS that we are offering has any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an account for each website hosted on your machine, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you order – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different people to make an FTP connection to the same directory using their very own set of sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t come across any complication, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
