FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to grant other persons access to any website in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software application installed on your home computer, you will be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at the same time and to update them effortlessly. If you give the login information to another individual to carry out a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even separate accounts that can access the same directory – if you would like several individuals to be able to access the exact same website content with completely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated plans don’t include a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to modify your Internet sites without effort. In case you’d like to stop the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP software programs. Furthermore, we have detailed step-by-step articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the ability to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve selected during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can create a different FTP account for each site or several accounts with access to a given folder – if you want to permit several individuals to be able to connect to that folder using their own personal login details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything’s done via an easy-to-work-with web-based interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
