FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of transmitting web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an intuitive GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are required in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an extensive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any impediments.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are amazingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a huge number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check our in-depth how-to video clips, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll be given the opportunity to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you have chosen during the server order process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your requirements, you can set up a different FTP account for every website or several accounts with access to a given folder – in case you wish to allow a number of individuals to be able to access that folder using their very own sign-in details. Even if you have never used a website hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problem creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, as everything’s done through a time and effort saving web interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
