FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of uploading content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our Linux cloud website hosting services
. This feature is not limited, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks done. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can access. Handy functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP software applications are also only one click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve picked on the order form, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you like via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a certain account any longer, you can just delete it and block people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert departs the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. A detailed Help library that includes instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting
that we’re offering includes a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each website hosted on your VPS, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several users to set up an FTP connection to the same folder with their very own log-in credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not have any complication, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
