FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of 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 designer, for instance, can do their task without accessing any other directory in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux hosting
that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can have multiple sites at once or provide other people with access to multiple folders. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply delete the account with several clicks and quit worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts with access to the exact same folder – in case you would like different users to be able to connect to the exact same web content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting
do not include any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to update your Internet sites without any effort. If you wish to stop the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP software applications. Also, we’ve got comprehensive step-by-step articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS
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 sites. This is valid irrespective of which package you order and which hosting Control Panel you select on the order form – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll have FTP access to the VPS without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software bundle which is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you own or even different accounts for a single directory – in case you want several persons to be able to connect to the web content in it with their very own set of sign-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface.
