FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transmitting website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need 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 preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to access any other directory in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Any of the cloud web hosting plans that we are offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other persons access to any website in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application installed on your personal computer, you will be able to manage numerous sites at once and to keep them updated without efforts. In case you provide the login credentials to some other individual for a specific task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a limit on 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 hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you no longer need it – for instance, if you have hired a designer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to access your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have shot different video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from our company, you’ll get the ability to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS plans, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve picked during the subscription process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you wish to permit several persons to be able to access that folder using their own login details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the machine, as everything’s done through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
