FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used means for exchanging web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will do the rest. There are several pros of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection or the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the best option especially if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Any of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your home computer, you will be able to administer numerous sites simultaneously and to update them effortlessly. If you give the login credentials to another individual for a specific task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you have opted for during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can just delete it and stop individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert leaves your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An elaborate Help library that contains how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting that we are offering has a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any website hosted on your VPS server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want different persons to be able to set up an FTP connection to one and the same folder using their very own sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any impediment, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
