FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widely used ways to upload and download files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are several pros of employing FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution especially if you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Any of the shared web hosting plans offered by us will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design software app pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple sites all at once and to keep them up to date without any efforts. If you provide the login info to some other individual to carry out a certain task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services are amazingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting multiple sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limit on 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 platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a web hosting account before, you can watch our exhaustive tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the VPS hosting services that we offer includes any cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you subscribe – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want several individuals to be able to establish a connection to the same directory with their very own login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have any difficulties, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
