FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to upload and download website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without accessing any other directory in your website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the website hosting offered by our company, since we have decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can run numerous websites all at once or provide other people with access to different directories. Once a certain task has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can just delete that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting plans, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to manage different 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
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you’ve opted for during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a particular account anymore, you can simply delete it and block people who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT specialist exits the firm and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An in-depth Help database that contains tutorial videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers that we offer includes any limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any Internet site hosted on your VPS, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several people to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory using their own personal login details, for example, it’ll take a few clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t need to deal with any complication, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
