FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transmit files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like 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 main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Any of the web hosting plans that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to grant other people access to any website in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design application pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to manage multiple Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any effort. In case you give the login details to another individual to do a specific task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t limited this functionality with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to modify its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a developer who’s finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have compiled a number of how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a website hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS servers that we’re offering has any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for any website hosted on your VPS, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want several persons to make an FTP connection to the very same directory with their own personal sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t come across any problem, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
