FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll 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. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you do not want to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you run into any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t limited this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a given account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts if you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve prepared different how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a web hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick upon registration – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll get FTP access to the machine without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even different accounts for one single folder – if you want several people to be able to connect to the web content inside it using their very own login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks via a user-friendly interface.
