FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods of sending website files between a PC and a server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s a problem with the connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With 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-mails or any other info, which makes it the ideal option especially if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage 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
Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our Linux shared hosting packages
. This feature is not limited, so with our easy-to-use 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 website-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what folders they can connect to. Handy options such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software applications are also just one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a specific account or to update its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have made a number of educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a web hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS
The virtual private server
packages offered by our company will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you order and which Control Panel you select during the signup procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll receive FTP access to the server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software suite that is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want a number of people to be able to connect to the content inside it using their own set of sign-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks via an easy-to-navigate GUI.
