FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to transfer website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Each of the website hosting packages offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other persons access to any website in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design program installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run numerous sites at the same time and to update them without any efforts. If you provide the login credentials to another individual for a certain task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same directory – if you would like several persons to be able to connect to the very same website content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans don’t involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to manage your files and to modify your websites without a hitch. In case you wish to stop the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP apps. What’s more, we have prepared comprehensive help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS servers offered by our company has any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each site hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several people to be able to establish a connection to one and the same folder using their own sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any predicaments, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
