What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to see any other content in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Any of the cloud web hosting
plans that we offer will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other persons with access to any website in your website hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your computer, you will be able to manage multiple sites all at once and to update them effortlessly. If you provide the login information to another individual for a given task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
are rather powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting many Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up an account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can watch our elaborate instructional video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
