FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used methods of exchanging files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will cope with all the rest. There are several benefits of employing FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there is a problem with the connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal option if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting packages
. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-work-with 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 web-related tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one mouse click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Useful functions such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP software apps are also just one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a certain FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected a number of tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you’ve never used a hosting package before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting packages
offered by us has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the VPS server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you join – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of individuals to access the very same folder using their own personal log-in credentials, for example, it will take several mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not run into any problem, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
