File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most famous methods for exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There’re several advantages of employing FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to give other people access to any website in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple sites at once and to keep them updated without efforts. If you give the login credentials to another individual to perform a particular task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts that can access the very same folder – in case you would like several persons to be able to connect to the exact same content with different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don’t involve any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to update your sites with no effort. In case you wish to stop the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP software apps. In addition, we have exhaustive help articles and educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS plans with us and pick any of the three hosting Control Panels that we’re offering – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it’s an integral part of the standard software pack that comes with all VPS servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will permit you to set up as many FTP accounts as you need and to select which directory each one of them can connect to. If you wish, you can even set up separate accounts for the same domain and give different persons their own set of login details to connect to the website content. Each of the three Control Panels will offer you the ability to set up, to modify or to delete an FTP account in several easy steps and with less than a few clicks, so even if you do not have any past experience, you will be able to administer an account without hassle.
