FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous methods of uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will cope with the rest. There’re several benefits of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the best solution when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you run into any complication.
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 of them, as we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a designer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve created a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a hosting package before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you will be provided with the possibility to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve picked during the signup process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can create a different FTP account for each site or several accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you would like to permit a number of persons to access that folder using their very own sign-in credentials. Even if you have never used a website hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, as everything is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
