FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer website files between a computer system 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 shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our Linux shared hosting. This functionality is not limited, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can connect to. Handy options such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP apps are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you’ve picked upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and block people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert exits your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An in-depth Help database that comprises instructional videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server package you order and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the subscription process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll be granted FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software bundle that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for one single folder – if you want several users to connect to the web content inside it using their very own personal log-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than several clicks through an easy-to-navigate interface.
