FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transfer web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make 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 program window. All you need to do to send files or entire 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 numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux website hosting that we’re offering, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at the same time or provide other individuals with access to different folders. Once a certain task has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting plans, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts that can access the same folder – if you want several persons to be able to access the very same web content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not involve a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to administer your files and to update your websites without a hitch. If you wish to stop the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP software apps. Furthermore, we’ve got comprehensive step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the subscription process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you will get FTP access to the VPS server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software suite which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want different users to be able to access the content in it using their very own sign-in credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-work-with web-based interface.
