FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means for uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the very best option particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any complications.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular account or to update its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without effort if you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve prepared different educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you’ve never used a hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by our company includes a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each site hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of users to access the exact same folder using their own set of login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t need to deal with any problem, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
