Find out about FTP accounts and about FTP in general - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have 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. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other folder in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting
packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any given time. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you encounter any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts that can access the exact same folder – in case you want different persons to be able to access the exact same content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans
don’t involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to update your sites without effort. If you wish to restrict the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP programs. What’s more, we have prepared exhaustive help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you purchase and which Control Panel you pick during the registration procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you will acquire FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have or even different accounts for one single directory – if you want several users to be able to access the content in it with their own set of sign-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than several mouse clicks through a simple-to-work-with web-based interface.
