FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of sending website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP application that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given time. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any predicaments.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
are truly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting lots of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a web hosting account previously, you can check our exhaustive educational videos, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from our company, you’ll have the ability to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server configurations, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked during the signup process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your necessities, you can have a different FTP account for every site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you want to permit several people to connect to that folder using their very own log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a website hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, as everything is done through a simple-to-work-with web interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
