FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will 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. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other directory in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other people with access to any site in your hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without efforts. If you give the login credentials to some other individual to perform a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked during the registration process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist quits the firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. A detailed Help repository that comprises how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans offered by our company will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which hosting Control Panel you select during the subscription process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll be granted FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the software stack which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even separate accounts for one single directory – in case you want several people to connect to the website content inside it with their own set of log-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few mouse clicks via a simple-to-work-with web-based interface.
