FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of sending files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole 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 lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other folder in the website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our Linux shared web hosting
. This functionality isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can access. Handy options such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP client programs are also just a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers
are extremely powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a huge number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our detailed instructional video clips, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from us, you will get the opportunity to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server packages, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected during the registration process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can create a different FTP account for every site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a given folder – in case you would like to permit several persons to be able to access that folder with their very own sign-in details. Even if you have never used a hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, removing or editing any FTP account on the virtual server, since everything is done via an intuitive graphical interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
