Discover FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select 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 set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other directory in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux shared hosting plans
that we’re offering, as we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can manage numerous websites at the same time or grant other persons access to multiple directories. Once a specific task has been fulfilled and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a certain account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to access your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have selected different educational videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a website hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS web hosting plans
with us and choose any of the 3 Control Panels that we are offering – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, an FTP server will be installed on your machine, since it is part of the basic software suite that comes with all virtual servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel.

Each of the three hosting Control Panels will offer you the ability to set up, to edit or to delete an FTP account in several simple steps and with less than several clicks of the mouse, so even in case you do not have any previous experience, you’ll be able to manage an account without any hassles.
