FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple Internet sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Each of the hosting plans that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to give other people access to any site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design software application installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to run multiple Internet sites at once and to update them effortlessly. If you provide the login information to another individual to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown 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’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to modify its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is done with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your website files any longer. For your convenience, we have prepared different tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts if you’ve never used a website hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick during the registration process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will acquire FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software suite that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you own or even separate accounts for one single folder – in case you want different people to connect to the website content inside it using their very own set of log-in details. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few mouse clicks through a simple-to-use web-based interface.
