FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular methods for exchanging website files between a computer and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the ability to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without having to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you have a web design software application pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous Internet sites all at once and to update them without any effort. If you give the login details to some other person to perform a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with ease in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to access your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected a number of tutorial videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting services offered by our company has any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on the VPS, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you sign up – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory with their very own set of log-in details, for example, it will take several mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not experience any complication, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
