FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the web hosting that we’re offering, because we have chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can run numerous sites at once or give other persons access to multiple folders. As soon as a given job has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve selected on the order form, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a specific account anymore, you can simply remove it and block people who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT expert quits the company and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help section that comprises instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by our company includes any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for any website hosted on the machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of individuals to set up a connection to one and the same folder using their very own set of log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have any impediment, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
