FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for exchanging web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole 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 plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. If you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their task 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 check all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even different accounts that can access one and the same directory – in case you want different people to be able to connect to the same content with different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not have a limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to update your websites with ease. If you want to limit the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP clients. Furthermore, we’ve got in-depth step-by-step articles and how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS web hosting service that we are offering includes a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on the VPS server, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you register – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to connect to the very same directory with their own login credentials, for instance, it will take several mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t run into any problem, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
