FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transmitting web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are required in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have any impediment.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are extremely powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a vast number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to modify it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can check our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we’re offering has any limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for any website hosted on your virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you order – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want several users to set up an FTP connection to the very same directory using their very own set of login details, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have any complications, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
