FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous methods of exchanging web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There’re several pros of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the best option particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a detailed Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any predicaments.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not restricted this feature with any of our plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created a number of educational video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a website hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be provided with the chance to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, irrespective of which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked upon registration – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can have a separate FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a given folder – in case you want to allow different users to be able to connect to that folder with their own set of login credentials. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything is done via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and takes just a few clicks.
