FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, 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 program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other directory in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our cloud hosting
. This functionality is not restricted, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-related tasks done. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can access. Handy options such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP client applications are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
are rather powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a vast number of sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth video tutorials, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers
that we are offering includes a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your machine, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to set up an FTP connection to the same folder using their very own set of log-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as easy and you will not experience any complication, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
