FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to upload and download files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes 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 many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our Linux cloud website hosting. This service isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can access. Useful functions such as changing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP applications are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans offered by us will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you buy and which Control Panel you pick at signup – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll be given FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software stack which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for one single directory – in case you want different individuals to be able to access the content in it with their very own set of login details. With each of the Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a few mouse clicks through an intuitive graphical interface.
