Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for exchanging web 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 program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting
plans that we are offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date with no effort. If you give the login info to some other person for a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a couple of clicks and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even separate accounts with access to one and the same directory – if you wish different individuals to be able to connect to the very same web content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers
do not have a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to modify your websites with ease. In case you wish to restrict the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP software applications. What’s more, we’ve compiled elaborate step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from us, you’ll be given the ability to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you have chosen during the registration process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for each website or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – if you’d like to allow a number of individuals to be able to access that folder with their very own set of log-in credentials. Even if you have never used a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your VPS server, as everything is done through an easy-to-navigate web interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
