FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of transferring web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Any of the web hosting packages that we offer will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other people with access to any website in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to administer numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you provide the login information to some other person for a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not put a limit on this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a certain FTP account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled a number of instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts if you have never used a web hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from us, you will have the option to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you have chosen upon signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Depending on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for each site or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you’d like to allow a number of people to be able to access that folder with their own set of sign-in credentials. Even if you have never used a hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, since everything’s done via an intuitive interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
