FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up 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’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to access any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our Linux shared website hosting
. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-connected tasks done. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just a click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can connect to. Useful options such as updating the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP client applications are also only a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve selected upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and block people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web designer or if an IT expert departs the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. An in-depth Help library that includes how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS
The virtual private server
plans that we offer will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select on the order form – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll acquire FTP access to the virtual machine without having to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software stack that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even different FTP accounts for a single folder – if you want different individuals to access the website content in it using their own login credentials. With any of the Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-navigate web interface.
