FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will 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 used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without accessing any other content in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a certain FTP account or to modify its access path with several clicks.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting packages that we are offering has a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for any Internet site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. It also doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several users to be able to make an FTP connection to the exact same folder using their own set of sign-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t come across any impediment, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
