FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for exchanging website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to see any other content in your website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our shared hosting
. This feature is not limited, so using our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks done. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one mouse click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can connect to. Handy functions such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP client apps are also only a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts with access to the exact same directory – if you would like several users to be able to access the very same content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated services
do not include a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your website files and to modify your websites without any effort. If you wish to restrict the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP client apps. Also, we’ve prepared detailed help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting services
offered by our company has a limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each site hosted on your virtual machine, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want different users to set up a connection to the exact same directory using their own sign-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t come across any impediment, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
