FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transmit website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other content in your hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Any of the web hosting plans that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to grant other persons access to any website in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design program installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple Internet sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without a hitch. If you give the login info to some other individual to carry out a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a limit on this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort if you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the site and you don’t want them to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a web hosting package before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we’re offering includes a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want different persons to establish an FTP connection to one and the same folder with their own login details, for example, it’ll take several clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t run into any problem, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
