File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most famous methods of transferring files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will cope with all the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload when there’s some problem with the connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud web hosting that we are offering, because we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage numerous websites all at once or grant other people access to different directories. As soon as a given job has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated services are amazingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an extensive number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Also, you can set up an account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a hosting account before, you can check our comprehensive how-to videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you will be provided with the opportunity to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, irrespective of the Control Panel that you have selected upon signup – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your requirements, you can have a different FTP account for each website or several FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you’d like to permit several individuals to access that folder with their very own log-in credentials. Even if you have never used a hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, since everything is done via an easy-to-use web interface and takes only a few clicks.
