FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widespread ways to exchange website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There are several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to set up 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, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the very best option if you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the cloud hosting offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run multiple sites all at once or give other individuals access to multiple directories. Once a specific task has been done and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer 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
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you have chosen during the subscription process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a given account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent persons who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT specialist exits your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. A detailed Help library that contains tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have any prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you purchase and which Control Panel you pick during the registration process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will have FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software suite that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for one single directory – in case you want several users to be able to access the website content in it using their very own personal log-in details. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks via an intuitive graphical interface.
