FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending website files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have 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 preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without accessing any other directory in your website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has done their job and you don’t want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you encounter any problems.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to access your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot different how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a web hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we offer will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which package you get and which Control Panel you choose on the order page – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will have FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the software stack that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want different persons to access the website content in it using their own personal login credentials. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-work-with web-based interface.
