FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to exchange web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed 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. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other folder in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our web hosting plans
. This service is not limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single mouse click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as changing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP apps are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we’re offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which package you get and which Control Panel you select upon registration – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software suite that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even different accounts for one single directory – in case you want several users to access the content in it with their very own sign-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks through a user-friendly web interface.
