FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading 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 check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire 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 access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to view any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you have chosen upon registration, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to make use of.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

This is valid irrespective of which plan you buy and which Control Panel you choose upon signup – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel.

You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want a number of persons to connect to the website content in it using their own log-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate GUI.
