FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most famous means for sending website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There are several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload if there is a problem with the connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared web hosting plans that we’re offering, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can manage multiple Internet sites at once or provide other individuals with access to multiple folders. As soon as a given job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans are astonishingly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting plenty of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our detailed instructional video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll be provided with the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ve selected at signup – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your needs, you can set up a separate FTP account for each website or a number of accounts with access to a given folder – if you want to allow a number of persons to connect to that folder with their own set of log-in details. Even if you’ve never used a web hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your server, since everything is done through an intuitive web interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
