Learn more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the main benefit of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange web files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or entire 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 many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other folder in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Any of the shared web hosting
packages that we are offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design application pre-installed on your home PC, you will be able to maintain multiple websites all at once and to keep them up to date without effort. In case you give the login information to another person to carry out a given task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts that can access one and the same directory – if you would like several users to be able to connect to the exact same web content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers
don’t involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to modify your sites with ease. In case you would like to limit the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP applications. Also, we have compiled elaborate step-by-step articles and educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers
that we are offering includes any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any Internet site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to make a connection to one and the same folder with their very own sign-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any problems, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
