FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to upload and download website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll 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 preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to access any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our hosting. This functionality is not restricted, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the folders that they can access. Handy functions such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client apps are also only one click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you have chosen upon registration, as the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account anymore, you can just remove it and block individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT individual retires from the firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. A detailed Help repository that comprises how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the VPS hosting offered by us includes a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of persons to be able to set up a connection to the same folder using their very own set of login credentials, for example, it will take a couple of mouse clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any obstacles, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
