FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many 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 complete their job without being able to see any other content in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any given time. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their job and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you experience any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a given FTP account or to update its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve made different instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS servers with our company and choose any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we are offering – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your VPS, since it is an essential part of the default software package that comes with all servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will enable you to create as many FTP accounts as you want and to choose which folder each of them can access. If you wish, you can even create separate FTP accounts for the same domain and give a number of individuals their own personal login details to access the website content. Any of the 3 hosting Control Panels will give you the option to create, to modify or to delete an FTP account in a few easy steps and with less than several mouse clicks, so even if you do not have previous experience, you will be able to administer an account without any hassles.
