File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most widespread means for sending website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal solution especially if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software program installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous websites all at once and to keep them updated without any efforts. If you give the login info to some other individual to perform a certain task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t restricted this service with any of our plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a certain FTP account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who’s finished with the website and you do not want them to connect to your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have made a number of instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS web hosting plans with us and pick any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we are offering – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it’s part of the default software stack that comes with all servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will allow you to create as many FTP accounts as you would like and to specify what directory each one of them will access. If you want, you can even create separate FTP accounts for the exact same domain name and give different individuals their very own set of login details to access the content. Any of the three hosting Control Panels will give you the chance to set up, to edit or to delete an FTP account in several simple steps and with less than a few mouse clicks, so even in case you’ve got no past experience, you’ll be able to manage an FTP account without a hitch.
