FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or whole 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 a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other directory in the web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux website hosting offered by us, as we have chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can maintain numerous websites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to different directories. Once a given task has been fulfilled and you do not want that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are stunningly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting numerous websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to change it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a web hosting account before, you can watch our exhaustive educational video clips, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.
