File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most popular methods of sending web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are several advantages of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download if there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the perfect option especially if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared web hosting offered by our company, as we have chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites simultaneously or give other people access to multiple directories. As soon as a given job has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just delete the account with several clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting numerous websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a web hosting account previously, you can watch our in-depth how-to videos, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll be given the option to create unlimited 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 upon registration – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your necessities, you can create a separate FTP account for every site or a number of accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you’d like to permit a number of users to be able to connect to that folder using their very own set of log-in details. Even if you have never opened a web hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, as everything’s done through a simple-to-work-with interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
