FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need 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. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other content in the website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any problems.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a given account or to modify its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a developer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For your convenience, we have created different how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you’ve never used a web hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans that we are offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you purchase and which Control Panel you pick on the order page – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have or even multiple accounts for a single directory – in case you want a number of persons to be able to access the web content in it using their own sign-in details. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than several mouse clicks through an easy-to-work-with web-based interface.
