FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used ways to send web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will take care of the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. If you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you come across any problem.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a restriction on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you do not need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have created different instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a web hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll get the ability to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server configurations, no matter the Control Panel that you have picked upon signup – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your demands, you can set up a different FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – if you’d like to permit a number of people to be able to access that folder using their very own log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a website hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or editing any FTP account on the server, since everything’s done via a simple-to-use interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
