FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used means for exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly when you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our Linux web hosting service. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and what directories they can connect to. Useful options such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP applications are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve picked upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT expert leaves the firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An elaborate Help library that contains educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have no prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we’re offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select during the server order process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll get FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even several accounts for one single directory – if you want a number of people to be able to connect to the content in it with their very own sign-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-use web interface.
