FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transmitting website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have 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 set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their job without accessing any other directory in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Any of the cloud web hosting plans offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software app installed on your home computer, you will be able to manage numerous websites all at once and to keep them up to date without effort. In case you provide the login details to some other individual for a certain task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a few clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated service are amazingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting many websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can check out our elaborate instructional videos, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS service offered by us includes any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for any site hosted on the virtual server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several users to make an FTP connection to the exact same directory using their own set of sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t need to deal with any difficulties, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
