FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire 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 many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to see any other content in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Each of the web hosting packages offered by us will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your personal computer, you will be able to manage multiple Internet sites all at once and to keep them updated without any efforts. In case you give the login credentials to some other individual to do a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a particular account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you no longer require it – for instance, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have created a number of how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you have never used a website hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from us, you’ll have the chance to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, irrespective of which Control Panel you have chosen during the server order procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can set up a different FTP account for each website or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you wish to allow several users to access that folder using their own log-in details. Even if you have never opened a website hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything is done via a user-friendly interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
