FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other content in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given moment. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you encounter any impediment.

You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a given FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we have created different instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a web hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to connect to the exact same folder with their own login details, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t come across any complication, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
