FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transferring files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you have opted for on the order page, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a specific account any longer, you can just remove it and block people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT professional departs the company and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. An in-depth Help section that includes tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you buy and which Control Panel you choose during the signup process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the VPS server without having to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software suite which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even several FTP accounts for a single directory – in case you want different persons to access the web content in it with their own personal login details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of clicks via a simple-to-navigate web-based interface.
