FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need 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 preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other directory in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the hosting services offered by our company, as we have chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites simultaneously or grant other people access to separate folders. As soon as a certain job has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting packages, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with no effort if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to access your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have created a number of how-to videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a website hosting service previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you will get the chance to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the server order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can set up a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a given folder – if you wish to allow a number of persons to be able to connect to that folder with their own personal sign-in credentials. Even if you have never used a web hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything is done via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
