FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of sending files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots 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 example, can do their job without accessing any other directory in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Any of the web hosting
plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application installed on your PC, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites at once and to keep them updated with no effort. In case you give the login details to some other individual to do a certain task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you want different people to be able to connect to the very same website content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting packages
do not involve any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to modify your websites with ease. If you would like to restrict the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account completely with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP programs. Furthermore, we’ve prepared comprehensive step-by-step articles and instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Accounts in VPS
The virtual private server
packages that we offer will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you get and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the subscription process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll obtain FTP access to the virtual machine without having to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software bundle that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even several accounts for one single directory – in case you want several individuals to be able to access the web content inside it with their own personal log-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than several clicks via a simple-to-navigate interface.
