FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most commonly used means for exchanging web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will do the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the very best solution especially if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux cloud web hosting that we offer, as we have decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous websites all at once or give other people access to multiple directories. As soon as a certain task has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to administer 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 Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are amazingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting plenty of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a hosting account before, you can watch our detailed tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the Linux VPS web hosting that we are offering includes any limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each website hosted on your VPS, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you order – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want several users to be able to make a connection to the exact same folder using their very own set of log-in credentials, for example, it will take several mouse clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t encounter any problems, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
