FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for uploading and downloading web files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire 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 a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without accessing any other directory in the website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux shared hosting that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites at the same time or give other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a particular job has been carried out and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even separate accounts with access to the same directory – in case you would like several people to be able to access the very same web content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting don’t have any restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your sites effortlessly. If you wish to limit the access to your web content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP clients. In addition, we have prepared detailed step-by-step articles and instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be provided with the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you have selected at signup – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for every website or a number of accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to permit different individuals to be able to access that folder using their very own set of sign-in details. Even if you have never had a hosting account before or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything’s done through an intuitive web-based interface and takes just a few mouse clicks.
