FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of transmitting files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared website hosting that we are offering, since we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can manage numerous websites simultaneously or provide other people with access to multiple directories. Once a specific task has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in VPS

If you open a Linux VPS packages with us and choose any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we’re offering – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is part of the default software pack that comes with all VPS servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will allow you to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like and to specify which directory each one of them will access. If you want, you can even set up different FTP accounts for the same domain name and give a number of individuals their very own set of log-in details to access the web content. Any of the three Control Panels will offer you the option to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a few easy steps and with less than several clicks, so even in case you do not possess past experience, you will be able to manage an FTP account without hassles.
