FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transmitting web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer 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 mark 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 of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to see any other folder in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular moment. In case you would not like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any impediment.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve selected at signup, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a particular account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual departs the firm and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. An in-depth Help database that contains educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS servers with us and choose any of the three Control Panels that we’re offering – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is an integral part of the default software bundle that comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will permit you to create as many FTP accounts as you wish and to define what folder each one of them can connect to. If you wish, you can even create different FTP accounts for one and the same domain name and give a number of users their own set of log-in credentials to access the web content. Each of the three hosting Control Panels will provide you with the possibility to create, to edit or to delete an FTP account in a couple of easy steps and with no more than several clicks, so even in case you don’t have any prior experience, you will be able to administer an account without hassles.
