FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish 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 you have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Any of the cloud web hosting plans that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to grant other people access to any site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your PC, you will be able to manage numerous websites all at once and to update them without any effort. If you provide the login information to another person to perform a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same directory – in case you would like several users to be able to connect to the very same web content with different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans do not involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to modify your Internet sites effortlessly. If you’d like to block the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP programs. Furthermore, we’ve got exhaustive step-by-step articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by our company includes a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for any Internet site hosted on the server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want different persons to be able to connect to the same folder with their own sign-in details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any problem, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
