FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for uploading website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the cloud hosting that we offer, because we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can manage multiple sites simultaneously or grant other individuals access to separate folders. As soon as a certain job has been completed and you don’t want that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can update the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts that can access the exact same directory – in case you want several users to be able to connect to the exact same web content with entirely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don’t involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your website files and to update your Internet sites without effort. If you want to block the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP software programs. Also, we’ve compiled comprehensive help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by us includes a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on the virtual server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several people to connect to the very same directory with their very own login credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not come across any difficulty, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
