Learn about FTP accounts and about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used ways to transfer files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There’re several advantages of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the perfect option particularly if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Each of the hosting
plans that we are offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software application installed on your personal computer, you will be able to administer numerous sites all at once and to keep them updated without any effort. If you provide the login details to some other individual to carry out a given task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same folder – in case you wish several individuals to be able to connect to the very same content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated plans
don’t have any restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to modify your websites without any effort. In case you would like to restrict the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP programs. In addition, we’ve got exhaustive help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS web hosting plans
that we’re offering has any limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an account for each website hosted on your VPS server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you join – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of users to set up an FTP connection to the same directory with their very own sign-in details, for example, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any predicaments, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
