FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up 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 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 numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our shared plans. This functionality is not limited, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have created and what folders they can access. Useful options such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP client programs are also only one click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not limited this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to edit its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts if you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve made a number of instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we are offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server package you purchase and which Control Panel you select upon registration – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will have FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even separate FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want a number of individuals to access the website content inside it with their very own set of sign-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks through an easy-to-work-with GUI.
