FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to upload and download website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred 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 designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to see any other content in your website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Our hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you encounter any impediments.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you’ve chosen on the order page, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a particular account any longer, you can simply delete it and prevent persons 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 specialist leaves the company and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. An extensive Help section that comprises educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server packages offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the subscription process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will get FTP access to the server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even separate accounts for a single folder – if you want different people to be able to connect to the content in it using their very own login details. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few clicks via an easy-to-work-with GUI.
