FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to exchange web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the shared web hosting plans offered by our company, because we have decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run multiple sites at once or provide other persons with access to multiple folders. As soon as a given job has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve picked during the order process, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you want through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a particular account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist exits your company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An in-depth Help section that includes educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which package you buy and which Control Panel you select during the server order procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want several users to connect to the content inside it with their own personal login credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-navigate web-based interface.
