FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transmit files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will 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. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other directory in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our Linux shared web hosting packages. This feature is not restricted, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the directories that they can access. Useful functions such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP software programs are also only one click away.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages that we are offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you order and which Control Panel you select at signup – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll be given FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even multiple FTP accounts for a single folder – in case you want several users to be able to connect to the web content in it with their very own set of sign-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks through an easy-to-navigate web-based interface.
