FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of transmitting files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific 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 clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you run into any impediment.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting that we’re offering has any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to be able to make a connection to the same directory with their very own set of login credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have any complications, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
