FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done using a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Our hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any complications.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a web hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which Control Panel you pick on the order form – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the VPS server without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the software stack that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even different accounts for a single directory – in case you want several users to connect to the website content in it with their own set of log-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than several clicks via an intuitive web-based interface.
