FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to upload and download website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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 will need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to view any other directory in your website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Our hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have any obstacle.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you’ve opted for during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you like via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT person leaves the company and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An extensive Help database that comprises how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from us, you will be given the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, irrespective of the Control Panel that you have picked during the subscription procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your necessities, you can set up a different FTP account for every Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you’d like to allow several persons to connect to that folder using their own set of log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your VPS server, as everything’s done through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
