FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to send web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you come across any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you wish different persons to be able to access the same web content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers do not have any restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to modify your websites without efforts. If you want to limit the access to your website content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP software programs. What’s more, we’ve prepared in-depth help articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from our company, you’ll get the ability to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, irrespective of which Control Panel you have chosen during the order procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can create a different FTP account for each site or several accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to allow different people to be able to connect to that folder with their very own set of log-in details. Even if you have never used a web hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything is done through an intuitive GUI and takes only a few clicks.
