FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous ways to transmit web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the best option particularly when you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux website hosting offered by us, as we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run multiple sites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple folders. Once a certain task has been done and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you would like different users to be able to connect to the same web content with totally different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated service do not have a limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to modify your sites with ease. If you would like to stop the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP applications. In addition, we have prepared exhaustive help articles and instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you choose upon registration – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the VPS server without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software bundle which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you own or even several accounts for a single directory – in case you want a number of users to connect to the content in it with their own set of sign-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks through a simple-to-navigate web interface.
