FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for exchanging files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders 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 create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other folder in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared hosting packages that we offer, because we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or provide other persons with access to separate directories. As soon as a particular task has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer different 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 Hosting
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not limited this functionality with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific account or to modify its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have made a number of video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans that we’re offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you pick on the order form – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will get FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software stack which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even different accounts for a single folder – in case you want a number of users to connect to the web content inside it using their very own set of log-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than several mouse clicks through an intuitive interface.
