FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of sending web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection 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 will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without accessing any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our Linux hosting. This functionality isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and what directories they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP client programs are also just a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are truly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an enormous number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to check the access path and to modify it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our detailed instructional video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting offered by us has any cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an account for each Internet site hosted on the virtual server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several persons to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory with their very own set of log-in details, for example, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not experience any problem, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
