FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous way to transfer files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud service that we are offering, because we’ve decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have numerous websites all at once or give other persons access to separate directories. Once a particular task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not limited this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific account or to update its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve compiled a number of educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a web hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you get and which Control Panel you select during the signup procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you will obtain FTP access to the server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the software suite which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want several users to connect to the web content inside it with their very own personal login details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than several clicks through a simple-to-use GUI.
