FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transmitting files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories 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 create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other folder in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux shared hosting packages
that we offer, since we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can run numerous websites at the same time or grant other people access to different directories. Once a given job has been completed and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even separate accounts with access to the same directory – in case you wish different people to be able to access the same content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages
do not include a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your website files and to modify your Internet sites without efforts. If you want to limit the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP software programs. Furthermore, we have compiled exhaustive help articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting packages
that we are offering has any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want a number of users to be able to set up a connection to one and the same directory using their own set of sign-in details, for instance, it will take several mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t come across any difficulty, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
