File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most commonly used means for transmitting files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will handle all the rest. There’re several advantages of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you have any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve opted for upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a given account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT professional leaves your firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An extensive Help database that contains educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the registration procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll gain FTP access to the VPS without installing any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software stack that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you host or even several FTP accounts for a single directory – in case you want different persons to be able to access the web content in it with their very own set of log-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via an intuitive interface.
