FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous means for transferring web files to a hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux shared packages offered by our company, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can manage multiple websites all at once or give other individuals access to separate folders. Once a specific job has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can edit the password for the FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts that can access the exact same folder – if you want several people to be able to connect to the very same web content with totally different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages do not involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to modify your sites without a hitch. If you want to restrict the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP client applications. What’s more, we’ve prepared exhaustive help articles and educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we’re offering includes any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on the VPS, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to connect to the very same folder using their own personal log-in credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any impediments, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
