FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of transmitting files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Any of the web hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other people access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to administer multiple websites at the same time and to keep them updated with ease. In case you give the login credentials to another person to perform a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are rather powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting numerous Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up the account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can watch our in-depth instructional videos, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by our company has a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on the VPS, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want several individuals to be able to make a connection to the very same directory with their own login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have any difficulty, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
