FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for sending files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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 main program window. All you 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 numerous 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 example, can fulfill their job without accessing any other folder in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability 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 corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting services that we’re offering includes a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an account for each site hosted on the virtual machine, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you order – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several users to be able to set up a connection to the exact same folder using their very own set of sign-in details, for example, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t come across any complication, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
