FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll have the option to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, no matter the Control Panel that you have picked during the registration procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you want to permit different persons to access that folder using their own sign-in credentials. Even if you have never used a hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, since everything is done via an intuitive web interface and takes just a couple of clicks.
