FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used methods of exchanging files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. With 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, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal option especially if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux hosting plans
offered by us, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can have multiple sites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple folders. Once a certain task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you want different persons to be able to access the exact same web content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans
do not have a restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to update your sites without efforts. If you wish to limit the access to your website content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP client programs. What’s more, we’ve got exhaustive help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from our company, you’ll be provided with the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS setups, no matter the Control Panel that you’ve picked on the order form – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your necessities, you can create a separate FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you want to permit several persons to be able to access that folder using their own personal sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a web hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the virtual server, since everything is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
