FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular moment. If you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or if a designer has done their job and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have any obstacle.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you have opted for on the order form, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT person quits the company and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. An elaborate Help library that includes tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting offered by us includes a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an account for each Internet site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of users to be able to connect to the exact same directory with their very own set of log-in credentials, for example, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not experience any impediment, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
