FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for exchanging files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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 preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in your website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Each of the hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to give other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design program installed on your PC, you’ll be able to run multiple sites at the same time and to keep them updated effortlessly. In case you provide the login information to some other person for a given task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not limited this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a particular account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a developer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot different educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a hosting service previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS
None of the Linux VPS that we are offering includes any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the virtual server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of users to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory using their very own set of login details, for example, it will take a few clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any complications, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
