FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to view any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Each of the shared website hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design program pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple sites at the same time and to keep them updated without any effort. If you give the login info to another person for a certain task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web designer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot a number of educational video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by our company has any limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each site hosted on the VPS server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different persons to access one and the same folder with their very own sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any complication, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
