FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for uploading website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux web hosting that we are offering, as we have chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites simultaneously or give other people access to separate folders. Once a particular job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anybody accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you have chosen during the registration process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account any longer, you can simply remove it and block individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual quits the company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help database that includes instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the Linux VPS web hosting packages offered by us includes a limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any Internet site hosted on the server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several users to be able to connect to the same folder with their own personal login credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t need to deal with any complication, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
