FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to transmit website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the shared hosting that we offer, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can manage multiple Internet sites all at once or give other individuals access to different directories. Once a specific task has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one click to administer various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even separate accounts that can access the exact same folder – if you would like different individuals to be able to access the exact same website content with different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting don’t include any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to modify your Internet sites effortlessly. If you wish to block the access to your web content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP software apps. What’s more, we have compiled elaborate step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the VPS web hosting packages that we’re offering includes a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for any website hosted on the machine, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you will select when you subscribe – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of users to be able to establish a connection to one and the same folder with their own personal log-in details, for example, it’ll take a few clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not have any complication, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
