FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means for sending files between a computer and a web server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using FTP, among them the ability to resume an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability 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, emails or other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the hosting offered by us, as we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites at once or grant other persons access to separate directories. Once a particular task has been fulfilled and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only a click to manage different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve chosen at signup, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT expert departs the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An elaborate Help section that includes instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess any prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by us includes any cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on your VPS server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you join – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several persons to be able to establish a connection to the very same folder using their very own set of sign-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a few clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any complication, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
