FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous method for sending web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. 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 online storage space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our Linux shared hosting packages
. This feature isn’t limited, so with our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only a click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Handy functions such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP client applications are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve selected at signup, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a specific account any longer, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT specialist leaves your firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. A detailed Help database that includes educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS
None of the Linux VPS packages
that we’re offering includes any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for each site hosted on your VPS server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you register – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different individuals to be able to establish a connection to the very same directory using their own sign-in details, for example, it’ll take several mouse clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any predicaments, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
