FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used means for transferring web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s a problem with the connection and the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the best option in case you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Any of the website hosting packages that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design app installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple Internet sites at the same time and to update them with ease. If you give the login info to some other person for a particular task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked during the registration process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a given account any longer, you can just remove it and block people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT professional exits the firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. A detailed Help library that includes instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which package you purchase and which Control Panel you choose at signup – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you will get FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the software bundle which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even several accounts for a single folder – if you want a number of people to be able to access the web content inside it using their very own login details. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate web-based interface.
