FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of exchanging website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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 have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other folder in the web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting services offered by us includes any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for each site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you order – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want different users to make an FTP connection to one and the same folder with their very own login details, for example, it will take several clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any difficulty, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
