FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread methods of transferring web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re several pros of employing FTP, including the option to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution especially when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared packages
offered by our company, as we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can manage numerous Internet sites all at once or provide other persons with access to multiple folders. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can change the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply remove the account with several clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts with access to the very same directory – if you want different users to be able to access the same website content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated packages
don’t involve any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to modify your sites without efforts. In case you would like to block the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP clients. What’s more, we’ve compiled detailed step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS
None of the Linux VPS packages
that we are offering has a limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each website hosted on your machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you register – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to make an FTP connection to the very same directory with their own sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t encounter any impediment, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
