FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous means for uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There are several advantages of employing FTP, including the ability to resume a download/upload when there’s some problem with the connection and the option to have 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 other info, which makes it the very best option if you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared web hosting that we’re offering, since we have decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites simultaneously or provide other people with access to multiple folders. Once a given job has been done and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you want several users to be able to connect to the same content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers do not have any limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to administer your website files and to update your sites without efforts. If you wish to block the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP applications. In addition, we’ve compiled exhaustive help articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers that we’re offering has any cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on your server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you sign up – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want different people to establish a connection to the exact same folder with their own personal login details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any difficulty, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
