FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for transferring files to a hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this using a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our Linux shared website hosting. This service isn’t restricted, so using our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just a click via 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 connect to. Useful functions such as updating the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP clients are also just one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a given account or to update its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a web hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages that we’re offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the subscription procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will gain FTP access to the VPS server without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software suite that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have registered or even different accounts for a single directory – in case you want different individuals to access the web content in it using their very own login credentials. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks via an easy-to-use GUI.
