FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for sending website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other content in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any impediment.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve picked during the subscription process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a specific account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT specialist quits the company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help section that contains tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans offered by our company will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you order and which Control Panel you select during the order procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll be granted FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without having to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software suite which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages 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 directory – if you want different users to connect to the web content inside it with their very own log-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few mouse clicks through an easy-to-navigate web-based interface.
