FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you 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 preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without accessing any other directory in the website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Each of the web hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design program pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to run numerous websites at the same time and to keep them updated with no effort. If you give the login information to another individual to do a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages that we offer has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on the VPS, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you join – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want several people to be able to make a connection to the exact same folder using their own personal login details, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not experience any complication, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
