FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means of sending website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this via an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. If you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any obstacles.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t restricted this functionality with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to edit its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a designer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we have made a number of how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting packages offered by our company includes a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any site hosted on the machine, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you join – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want a number of users to be able to access the very same folder using their very own login details, for example, it will take several mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any complications, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
