Find out about FTP accounts and about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will require them.
FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transmit website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or whole directories 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 one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other directory in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux cloud web hosting
offered by us, because we have decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous sites at once or provide other persons with access to multiple directories. Once a certain job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several clicks and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even separate accounts with access to the very same folder – in case you wish several persons to be able to connect to the same content with completely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
do not include a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to update your Internet sites without a hitch. If you wish to restrict the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP applications. What’s more, we’ve compiled detailed help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server
plans offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you choose on the order form – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you’ll be given FTP access to the machine without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software stack that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even several accounts for one single folder – in case you want different individuals to access the web content in it using their own sign-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use GUI.
