FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client application that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are compulsory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any difficulties.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are rather powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an enormous number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Also, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never opened a web hosting account before, you can check out our detailed tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the registration procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will get FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software suite which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even multiple accounts for a single folder – in case you want several people to be able to connect to the content in it with their own set of log-in details. With each of the Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks through a simple-to-navigate web-based interface.
