FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of uploading website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Each of the web hosting packages that we offer will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design application installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple sites at once and to update them with no effort. In case you provide the login details to some other individual to perform a given task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even different accounts that can access the exact same directory – if you wish several persons to be able to access the very same content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t have a restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to modify your sites with ease. If you would like to stop the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP software applications. What’s more, we’ve got exhaustive help articles and educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by our company includes any limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an account for each site hosted on your server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want several people to be able to make an FTP connection to one and the same folder using their own personal sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take several clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you will not experience any impediment, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
