FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to upload web files to a hosting account. With an FTP client that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with any of our cloud website hosting service
. This feature is not limited, so with our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can access. Handy options such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP software programs are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a given account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled a number of tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a web hosting package before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans that we are offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select upon signup – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be granted FTP access to the VPS without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even different accounts for a single directory – if you want different persons to access the website content inside it with their very own log-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than several clicks of the mouse via an intuitive web-based interface.
