FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular way to send content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our Linux cloud hosting plans. This service is not limited, so using our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy functions such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP apps are also just a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are extremely powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an immense number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to check the access path and to modify it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account previously, you can watch our detailed instructional video clips, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you get and which hosting Control Panel you choose on the order page – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll obtain FTP access to the machine without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the software suite that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want several people to access the content inside it with their own set of login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-navigate interface.
