FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used means for transmitting web files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There are a number of advantages of using FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download when there is a problem with the connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal solution if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting packages that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to give other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app installed on your computer, you will be able to administer numerous websites all at once and to keep them updated without a hitch. If you provide the login details to another person to perform a given task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve picked on the order page, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a particular account any longer, you can just remove it and block individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT person quits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files any longer. An elaborate Help repository that includes how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by us has a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each website hosted on the VPS, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you sign up – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of persons to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory with their very own set of sign-in details, for example, it will take several clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t come across any difficulty, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
