FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transmit web files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to view any other folder in your hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build 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 Shared Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the shared packages that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to multiple directories. Once a given task has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not put a limit on this service with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a specific account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to access your files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve selected a number of tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts if you have never used a hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server packages that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you choose upon registration – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will have FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you own or even different accounts for one single folder – if you want a number of individuals to be able to access the web content inside it with their very own set of log-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks through a user-friendly web-based interface.
