FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of transmitting website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are necessary to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Any of the cloud website hosting packages that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple websites at once and to keep them updated effortlessly. If you give the login information to some other individual to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are very powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting multiple sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up the account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive video tutorials, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by our company has a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each website hosted on your virtual server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want several individuals to establish an FTP connection to the exact same folder with their own set of login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not run into any complication, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
