FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous 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 web designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other folder in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any impediment.

This is valid for all VPS setups, no matter the Control Panel that you have picked during the subscription procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your requirements, you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you would like to permit a number of users to access that folder using their own personal sign-in credentials. Even if you have never had a hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your server, since everything’s done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
