FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transferring web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will 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. FTP is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared web hosting
that we offer, since we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can run multiple Internet sites at once or provide other individuals with access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific task has been accomplished and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few clicks and quit worrying about somebody accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse 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
With our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts that can access the very same directory – in case you wish different users to be able to access the exact same content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers
don’t include any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to modify your sites effortlessly. If you wish to stop the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account completely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software apps. In addition, we’ve got in-depth step-by-step articles and how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from our company, you’ll have the opportunity to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server packages, regardless of the Control Panel that you’ve picked during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your necessities, you can create a separate FTP account for each site or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – if you would like to permit a number of persons to be able to connect to that folder using their own set of sign-in details. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS, as everything is done through a user-friendly GUI and takes only a few mouse clicks.
