Learn more about what FTP actually is, what it does and what is the advantage of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without accessing any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. If you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their job and you do not want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any impediment.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a given account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is especially useful in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT professional retires from your company and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. A detailed Help library that comprises instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which Control Panel you select during the registration process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be given FTP access to the VPS without having to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software bundle which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even multiple FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want a number of individuals to connect to the website content in it with their very own sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few mouse clicks through a simple-to-use interface.
