FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous ways to exchange files between a computer and a server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there is a problem with the connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the best option in case you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the cloud hosting that we offer, because we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites all at once or give other persons access to different directories. As soon as a specific job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can modify the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a large number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our 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 server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can check our elaborate how-to video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers that we offer includes a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an account for each site hosted on the machine, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you join – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different users to be able to set up an FTP connection to the very same directory using their own set of sign-in credentials, for example, it’ll take several clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any obstacle, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
