FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for uploading content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any obstacles.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even different accounts that can access one and the same folder – if you wish different people to be able to access the exact same content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not involve a restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your files and to modify your sites without effort. In case you want to stop the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account completely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP clients. In addition, we have compiled exhaustive step-by-step articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting packages offered by us has any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate FTP account for any website hosted on your VPS server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you subscribe – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want different persons to be able to access one and the same folder with their very own set of login credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have any impediment, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
