FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used methods of uploading and downloading web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared web hosting services that we offer, since we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can run multiple Internet sites at the same time or provide other people with access to multiple directories. Once a certain task has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage various 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 Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services are quite powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a lot of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each website that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account previously, you can watch our in-depth how-to videos, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which package you purchase and which Control Panel you pick during the registration process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will acquire FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even different FTP accounts for a single folder – in case you want different people to be able to connect to the website content in it using their own personal sign-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than several mouse clicks via an easy-to-navigate web interface.
