FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire 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 plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting packages offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any website in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design app installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous websites at once and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you give the login info to some other person to do a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even different accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you want several users to be able to access the same content with totally different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to manage your files and to modify your websites without a hitch. If you’d like to block the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP software apps. In addition, we’ve prepared detailed step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
