FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send web files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used 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 instance, can carry out their task without accessing any other folder in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages offered by our company will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other people access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software app installed on your PC, you will be able to maintain numerous websites at once and to keep them updated without any efforts. If you provide the login information to some other person for a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we have not set a restriction on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you do not require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot a number of instructional video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a website hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting that we offer includes any limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each website hosted on your machine, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you register – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of persons to set up a connection to the same folder using their very own sign-in details, for example, it’ll take several clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not need to deal with any predicaments, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
