FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most commonly used methods for exchanging website files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the best option when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the web hosting offered by us, as we have decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can have multiple Internet sites at the same time or give other people access to separate folders. Once a specific task has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. 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-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even separate accounts with access to one and the same folder – in case you want different individuals to be able to connect to the exact same content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t include a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your website files and to modify your Internet sites without efforts. In case you want to stop the access to your web content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP apps. Furthermore, we’ve prepared exhaustive step-by-step articles and educational videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers that we’re offering includes a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for any site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of persons to make an FTP connection to the very same directory using their own sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any problems, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
