FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of sending files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with any of our cloud hosting service
. This functionality is not limited, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can connect to. Useful functions such as changing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP programs are also just one click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, since we have not set a restriction on this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to change its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts if you no longer need it – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have created a number of instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a web hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS servers
offered by our company has any limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on your machine, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will select when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want several users to establish an FTP connection to the exact same folder with their very own set of sign-in details, for example, it will take several clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t come across any impediment, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
