FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widely used methods of transmitting website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload when there is some problem with the connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our shared hosting. This functionality is not limited, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP software apps are also just a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even multiple accounts that can access the same folder – if you want several people to be able to access the very same website content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers do not have any limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to update your websites without any effort. In case you want to block the access to your web content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account completely with no more than a couple of clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP client applications. Also, we have prepared in-depth step-by-step articles and instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by us has a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each site hosted on your server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you order – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want several people to be able to set up an FTP connection to the exact same directory with their own personal log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a few clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have any complication, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
