FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any problems.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
are truly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a lot of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up a new account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a hosting account before, you can check our in-depth tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server
packages offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the registration process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the VPS without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the software suite that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you host or even multiple FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want different individuals to connect to the web content inside it with their own set of log-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks through an intuitive graphical interface.
