FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular methods of sending files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will do the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the cloud hosting that we’re offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can run numerous websites all at once or provide other people with access to different folders. Once a certain task has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have selected upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a given account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual departs your company and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. An elaborate Help repository that contains video tutorials will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have no prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected during the order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your demands, you can have a different FTP account for every website or several accounts with access to a specific folder – if you’d like to permit several users to connect to that folder using their own set of login details. Even if you have never used a web hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on the machine, as everything’s done through an easy-to-work-with web-based interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
