Understand more about what FTP really is, what it can do and what is the benefit of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of exchanging web files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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 main program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other directory in your website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
are exceptionally powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an enormous number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to update it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a web hosting account previously, you can watch our in-depth how-to videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from us, you will have the opportunity to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked on the order form – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for each site or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you wish to permit several people to access that folder with their own login details. Even if you have never opened a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, removing or editing any FTP account on the server, as everything is done via an easy-to-use web interface and takes just a few mouse clicks.
