FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other directory in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared hosting
offered by us, because we’ve chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can run multiple sites at once or grant other persons access to different directories. As soon as a specific job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only a click to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts that can access one and the same folder – if you would like different people to be able to connect to the exact same web content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
do not involve any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your website files and to update your sites without any effort. In case you want to limit the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP software applications. Furthermore, we have compiled detailed step-by-step articles and educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
