FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories 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 limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other folder in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux cloud website hosting that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites at once or provide other persons with access to different folders. As soon as a specific job has been accomplished and you would not like that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t limited this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a certain account or to update its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled different video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you’ve never used a web hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS
In case you open a Linux VPS packages with our company and select any of the three hosting Control Panels that we are offering – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your machine, since it’s an integral part of the standard software suite that comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will allow you to set up as many FTP accounts as you want and to pick which directory each one of them will access. If you want, you can even create multiple accounts for the same domain name and give different individuals their own set of log-in details to access the website content. Any of the three hosting Control Panels will provide you with the chance to set up, to edit or to remove an FTP account in several easy steps and with no more than several mouse clicks, so even in case you don’t possess any previous experience, you’ll be able to manage an account effortlessly.
