FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread means for transferring web files between a computer and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with the rest. There are a number of pros of using FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the very best option if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Any of the cloud website hosting packages offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to grant other persons access to any site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to manage numerous websites all at once and to update them effortlessly. In case you provide the login info to another person for a certain task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not put a restriction on this feature with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a certain account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without efforts if you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a developer who is done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have shot a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a web hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS servers offered by us has any limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each website hosted on your virtual server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of people to be able to establish a connection to the very same directory using their own set of login details, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any difficulties, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
