FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most widely used methods for sending web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will do the rest. There are a number of benefits of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the very best option especially if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Our hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has done their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have in-depth help articles, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any problem.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have opted for upon signup, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT person leaves the company and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. A detailed Help section that includes tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess any prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by our company includes any cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several persons to make a connection to one and the same folder using their very own log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have any difficulties, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
