FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to exchange files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown 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 select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other folder in the website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Any of the cloud web hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other people with access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to maintain numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them updated without effort. In case you give the login info to another person to carry out a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve opted for during the subscription process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a particular account anymore, you can simply delete it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT professional retires from your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help repository that comprises how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from our company, you’ll have the possibility to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server configurations, no matter the Control Panel that you’ve picked during the registration procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for each site or several accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to allow a number of people to access that folder with their own personal log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, removing or editing any FTP account on the virtual machine, since everything’s done via an intuitive GUI and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
