FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular ways to transfer files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There’re several pros of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download if there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the perfect option especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any obstacle.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort if you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we have prepared a number of educational video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server
packages offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick upon registration – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll receive FTP access to the VPS server without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software suite that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even different FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want different people to connect to the website content in it with their own log-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-work-with GUI.
