FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to send website files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other content in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our hosting. This service is not limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can access. Useful options such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP software apps are also only one click away.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers that we’re offering has a limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on your virtual machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want several users to access the same folder using their own personal sign-in details, for example, it’ll take several clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not encounter any impediments, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
