FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transmitting website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each of the cloud web hosting packages offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to give other persons access to any site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software app pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to run numerous sites all at once and to keep them updated with no effort. In case you give the login details to another person for a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are extremely powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a vast number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to change it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a web hosting account previously, you can check out our in-depth educational video clips, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS service offered by our company has a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for any website hosted on the machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to make an FTP connection to the very same directory with their very own set of log-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have any problems, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
