File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most popular means for sending website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There’re several benefits of using FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the very best solution when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have a detailed Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts with access to one and the same folder – if you wish different people to be able to connect to the exact same website content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not have a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to modify your websites without effort. If you wish to limit the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account completely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP clients. Also, we’ve prepared comprehensive help articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS
None of the Linux VPS offered by our company has any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want several persons to connect to the exact same directory using their very own sign-in details, for instance, it will take a couple of mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not have any problem, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
