FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to transfer web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, 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 need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty 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 example, can do their task without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Each of the hosting packages offered by us will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design app installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any effort. If you provide the login details to another person to perform a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this feature with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to update its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have made a number of video tutorials, that will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from our company, you will get the opportunity to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server plans, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve picked during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Depending on your needs, you can set up a separate FTP account for each Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you would like to allow several individuals to connect to that folder with their own personal login credentials. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, since everything’s done via a time and effort saving web-based interface and takes only a few clicks.
