FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used means for uploading and downloading web files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the very best solution especially when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you experience any complication.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you’ve chosen on the order form, since the FTP access is among the default 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 via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account any longer, you can simply delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT professional leaves your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An elaborate Help repository that includes instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be given the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, irrespective of the Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the signup process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your needs, you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site or several accounts with access to a particular folder – if you’d like to permit several individuals to access that folder using their own set of login credentials. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the virtual machine, as everything’s done through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
