FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to send content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. If you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any predicaments.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a limit on this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For your convenience, we have prepared a number of instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
If you open a Linux virtual private servers
with our company and select any of the 3 Control Panels that we are offering – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, an FTP server will be installed on your VPS, since it is part of the basic software bundle that comes with all VPS servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will enable you to create as many FTP accounts as you want and to pick the folder that each one of them can access. If you wish, you can even create separate accounts for the same domain and give a number of individuals their own set of log-in credentials to access the website content. Each of the 3 Control Panels will provide you with the chance to set up, to edit or to remove an FTP account in a few easy steps and with less than several clicks, so even if you’ve got no previous experience, you’ll be able to administer an account in a seamless fashion.
