FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to send website content to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have detailed help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any impediment.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you like via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a certain account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual quits the company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help section that comprises educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you choose upon registration – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be granted FTP access to the machine without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even multiple accounts for one single directory – in case you want different people to access the website content in it using their very own set of log-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-use web-based interface.
