FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular means for sending web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our shared hosting service
. This service isn’t restricted, so using our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can connect to. Handy functions such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP client programs are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t limited this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts if you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a designer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot a number of educational videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages offered by our company will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which Control Panel you choose during the signup procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll be granted FTP access to the virtual machine without having to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have or even different accounts for one single directory – in case you want several users to be able to access the content in it with their own log-in details. With any of the Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few mouse clicks through an easy-to-work-with web interface.
