FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas 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 whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with any of our Linux shared hosting service. This service is not limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the directories that they can access. Useful functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP software apps are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you’ve selected upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a particular account anymore, you can just delete it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT individual retires from your company and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. An in-depth Help repository that comprises instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have no prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter which Control Panel you’ve chosen during the subscription process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for each website or several accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to permit several people to be able to connect to that folder using their own login details. Even if you have never had a web hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the server, since everything’s done via an easy-to-work-with interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
