FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select 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 access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other content in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. If you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts listed 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-config file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any predicament.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated services are quite powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting many sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to check the access path and to modify it, if needed. Also, you can set up an account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a hosting account previously, you can check our elaborate how-to videos, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

If you wish, you can even create different accounts for the exact same domain name and give different users their very own login credentials to connect to the web content. Each of the three hosting Control Panels will provide you with the chance to set up, to edit or to delete an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with less than a few mouse clicks, so even in case you don’t possess prior experience, you will be able to administer an FTP account without any efforts.
