File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most widely used ways to transmit web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download when there is a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution particularly if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other people access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software app installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to run multiple Internet sites at the same time and to update them without efforts. If you provide the login credentials to another individual to do a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a few clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve chosen during the registration process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will 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 web content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a certain account any longer, you can simply remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT person departs the company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help database that includes tutorial videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS
The virtual private server plans offered by us will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you order and which Control Panel you choose during the VPS order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will obtain FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without having to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the software stack which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even separate FTP accounts for a single directory – in case you want a number of users to be able to access the website content in it with their very own set of log-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use web interface.
