FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular methods of exchanging website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the shared hosting
that we are offering, since we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites simultaneously or give other people access to multiple directories. As soon as a given task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you wish different individuals to be able to connect to the same content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers
do not involve a restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to modify your sites with ease. In case you wish to stop the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP programs. What’s more, we’ve got exhaustive help articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers
offered by our company has any limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for any website hosted on your server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want a number of persons to be able to connect to the very same directory with their very own sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t need to deal with any predicaments, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
