FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread means of uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best solution especially when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting packages that we offer will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design software program pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to manage numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to update them without any efforts. In case you provide the login details to another individual to carry out a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t set a limit on this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a given FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the Linux VPS web hosting that we offer includes a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want a number of persons to connect to the same directory using their very own set of login details, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t encounter any difficulties, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
