FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Any of the cloud web hosting plans that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to run numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them up to date with no effort. In case you give the login credentials to some other person to carry out a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are incredibly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an enormous number of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check our comprehensive video tutorials, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server from us, you’ll be provided with the chance to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server configurations, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you have chosen during the subscription procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your needs, you can create a separate FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you want to permit several people to be able to access that folder using their own personal login credentials. Even if you have never opened a website hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything is done via an easy-to-use interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
