FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transferring files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up 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 have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their job without accessing any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a particular account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a developer who is done with the website and you do not want them to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we have created a number of educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS web hosting service that we’re offering includes a limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for any site hosted on the VPS, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as 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 be able to set up a connection to the same folder using their very own set of sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not experience any problem, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
