FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for uploading and downloading website files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without accessing any other folder in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Any of the cloud website hosting packages offered by us will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software app installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain multiple Internet sites simultaneously and to update them without any effort. If you give the login details to another individual to do a certain task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a few clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve selected during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a certain account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is particularly handy if you use the services of a designer or if an IT person quits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. A detailed Help database that contains educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS servers offered by our company includes any cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on your server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want several people to be able to access the exact same directory with their very own set of sign-in details, for example, it will take several mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any predicament, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
