FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you need 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 many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other content in your web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have a detailed Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you encounter any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting service are truly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting plenty of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a web hosting account previously, you can check our detailed tutorial videos, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

This is valid for all VPS server packages, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected on the order form – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you would like to permit a number of individuals to connect to that folder with their own personal login details. Even if you have never had a website hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your server, since everything’s done through an easy-to-navigate web interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
