FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit website files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP software program like 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 displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to see any other folder in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the shared website hosting that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have multiple websites at once or grant other people access to multiple directories. Once a particular task has been done and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated packages are pretty powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a lot of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to change it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our exhaustive video tutorials, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be provided with the possibility to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, irrespective of which Control Panel you have selected on the order page – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can create a different FTP account for every site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to permit several people to access that folder with their own set of log-in details. Even if you have never used a website hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS, as everything is done through an easy-to-navigate GUI and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
