FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their task and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have any problem.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can simply remove it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT expert quits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An elaborate Help section that comprises video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS
The virtual private server
packages that we are offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which hosting Control Panel you select during the server order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you will obtain FTP access to the VPS without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software bundle that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even different FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want several persons to access the website content in it using their very own set of login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few mouse clicks via an easy-to-navigate interface.
