FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other folder in the hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any difficulties.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is done with the site and you don’t want them to connect to your website files anymore. For your convenience, we have made different tutorial videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a web hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages offered by us will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the registration procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will obtain FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even separate FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want a number of persons to access the content inside it with their very own login details. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than several mouse clicks through an intuitive GUI.
