FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to transfer files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the 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. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve picked during the registration process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you need from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a given account anymore, you can simply delete it and block people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT person departs the company and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. A detailed Help section that comprises educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers
offered by our company includes any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate account for any site hosted on the virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you join – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want a number of persons to be able to make an FTP connection to the same folder using their very own set of sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not encounter any difficulties, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
