FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous method for transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are required 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 Website Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our Linux website hosting packages. This feature isn’t limited, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Useful functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP programs are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a limit on this functionality with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled different how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a website hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you will be provided with the opportunity to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you have chosen at signup – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can create a different FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to permit several people to be able to connect to that folder with their own sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything’s done through an intuitive GUI and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
