FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of transferring web content to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. You need three things to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can run multiple Internet sites all at once or give other individuals access to separate folders. Once a particular task has been completed and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can change the password for the particular FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are exceptionally powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a huge number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Also, you can set up an account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can watch our elaborate how-to video clips, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans that we are offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will be given FTP access to the server without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the software stack that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even different FTP accounts for a single folder – if you want different people to access the content inside it with their very own login credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks via an intuitive web-based interface.
