FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous methods of transferring web files between a computer and a server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will handle the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the ability to restart an upload/download when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the best solution particularly if you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux shared web hosting packages
that we’re offering, since we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites at once or give other people access to different folders. Once a certain job has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in 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 restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created different tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you’ve never used a website hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server
plans offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the subscription procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you will be provided with FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software suite which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even several accounts for a single directory – if you want a number of persons to connect to the content inside it with their own sign-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of clicks via a simple-to-work-with GUI.
