FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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 lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux web hosting that we are offering, as we have decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can have multiple websites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same directory – if you want different persons to be able to connect to the very same content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not include a restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your Internet sites with ease. In case you’d like to limit the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP software programs. In addition, we have prepared exhaustive step-by-step articles and educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
