FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to exchange files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you have 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 many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any complication.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we’re offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the signup process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you will have FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the software suite which comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even separate accounts for a single directory – in case you want several individuals to be able to access the content inside it using their own personal sign-in details. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of mouse clicks through an intuitive web-based interface.
