File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most famous means of exchanging files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the ideal option especially when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Any of the hosting packages offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design program installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to manage multiple websites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any efforts. In case you provide the login information to some other individual to do a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a few clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts that can access the same directory – in case you wish several individuals to be able to connect to the exact same content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans don’t have a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your files and to update your Internet sites with no effort. In case you’d like to stop the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software apps. Furthermore, we have detailed help articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS web hosting plans offered by us includes a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each site hosted on the VPS server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you sign up – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different individuals to be able to establish an FTP connection to the very same folder with their own set of sign-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not encounter any impediment, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
