FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transfer website files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC 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 mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud plans that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can run numerous sites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. As soon as a specific task has been done and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just delete the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected different tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a hosting package before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we are offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you order and which Control Panel you choose during the signup procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll receive FTP access to the server without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the software suite that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even different accounts for one single folder – if you want different users to be able to access the website content in it using their own personal login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-use graphical interface.
