FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for sending website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you 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 preferred by plenty 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 instance, can complete their job without being able to view any other directory in the website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous Internet sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Any of the shared hosting packages offered by us will permit 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 web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to run multiple sites at once and to update them with ease. If you provide the login credentials to another person to carry out a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked during the subscription process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a particular account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly useful if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT expert retires from the firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. An elaborate Help database that includes instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have any previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you will get the option to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Depending on your demands, you can set up a different FTP account for each Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to permit several persons to be able to access that folder using their very own set of log-in details. Even if you have never had a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the machine, since everything’s done through a user-friendly GUI and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
