FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes 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 create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the shared service that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can manage numerous websites all at once or grant other persons access to multiple folders. Once a specific task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about somebody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting packages, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even separate accounts with access to the same directory – in case you would like different users to be able to access the very same website content with different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated service don’t involve any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to modify your sites without effort. In case you’d like to limit the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP client apps. In addition, we’ve got detailed step-by-step articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from our company, you will be given the ability to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS packages, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you have picked during the server order procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for every website or several accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you want to allow a number of individuals to connect to that folder using their very own sign-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the virtual machine, as everything is done via a simple-to-work-with GUI and takes only a few clicks.
