File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most widespread means of transmitting files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will do the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s a problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the best solution in case you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux shared hosting offered by our company, because we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous websites at once or grant other persons access to different directories. As soon as a certain job has been fulfilled and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even multiple accounts with access to the very same folder – in case you want several people to be able to access the exact same website content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting services don’t have any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to update your websites effortlessly. In case you wish to stop the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP client applications. In addition, we have elaborate help articles and video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be provided with the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected during the registration process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to allow a number of persons to be able to connect to that folder with their very own login credentials. Even if you have never had a hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on the virtual machine, as everything’s done via an intuitive web-based interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
