FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to exchange web files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main 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 used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our shared web hosting services. This feature isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a web developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP client applications are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have chosen during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a certain account any longer, you can just delete it and stop people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a designer or if an IT individual leaves your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An extensive Help library that contains how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you will have the ability to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server packages, regardless of which Control Panel you have chosen during the server order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your requirements, you can set up a separate FTP account for each site or several accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you’d like to allow several individuals to access that folder using their very own login details. Even if you have never used a website hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual machine, as everything’s done via a time and effort saving graphical interface and takes just a few clicks.
