FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous methods for transmitting web files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will handle the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download if there is some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect option in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud hosting offered by our company, as we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can manage numerous sites at once or give other persons access to separate directories. Once a specific job has been carried out and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you wish several people to be able to connect to the very same website content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated packages don’t include any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to update your Internet sites without effort. In case you want to stop the access to your website content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP clients. Also, we’ve got elaborate help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the VPS web hosting offered by us has any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for any Internet site hosted on the server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you order – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of persons to be able to make a connection to the exact same folder using their very own login credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t come across any impediment, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
