FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread methods for transferring web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the best option especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Any of the shared hosting packages that we are offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to administer multiple websites at the same time and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you provide the login credentials to some other person to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not set a limit on this service with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use 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 of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a particular account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who is done with the website and you do not want them to access your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve made different instructional videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a hosting service previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS plans that we are offering has a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for any site hosted on your machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you order – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of individuals to make an FTP connection to the exact same folder with their own set of login credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t experience any difficulty, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
