FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transmitting web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without accessing any other content in your hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux website hosting offered by us, since we have decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites at the same time or give other people access to different directories. As soon as a specific task has been done and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a developer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a web hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we are offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you select during the subscription procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without having to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the software bundle that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even different FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want several persons to be able to access the content inside it using their very own personal log-in credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks via a user-friendly interface.
