FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for sending website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or whole 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 create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to see any other folder in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

. This service isn’t restricted, so using our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished.

For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP client applications are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve chosen during the order process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account anymore, you can simply remove it and prevent individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist exits the company and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An in-depth Help database that includes educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have no prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans offered by our company will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the registration process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will be granted FTP access to the VPS without having to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even multiple accounts for one single folder – in case you want several individuals to be able to access the website content inside it with their very own set of login credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks via an easy-to-work-with interface.
