FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for exchanging website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish 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 main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole 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 plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud hosting services that we are offering, as we have decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage multiple websites at once or provide other persons with access to different directories. Once a particular job has been carried out and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing 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
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you have picked during the order process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and block persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT professional leaves the company and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. An in-depth Help library that contains educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the VPS web hosting services that we are offering has a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each website hosted on your virtual server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you join – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different individuals to set up an FTP connection to one and the same directory using their very own set of sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to create an 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 have to deal with any obstacles, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
