FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for uploading web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. You need three things in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Each of the shared website hosting plans offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to administer multiple sites all at once and to keep them up to date without efforts. If you provide the login details to another person to do a certain task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans are incredibly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a huge number of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a web hosting account before, you can check our comprehensive educational videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you will get the possibility to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected during the order process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your needs, you can create a separate FTP account for every site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – if you want to permit several users to be able to connect to that folder with their very own sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your machine, as everything’s done through a simple-to-work-with GUI and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
