FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll 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 one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you encounter any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve made a number of how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts if you have never used a website hosting package before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we are offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you buy and which hosting Control Panel you select during the signup procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll have FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software stack that is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even multiple accounts for one single folder – in case you want different persons to be able to access the website content in it with their own sign-in details. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than several clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface.
