FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for uploading website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the hosting that we are offering, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can run numerous Internet sites at the same time or grant other people access to different directories. As soon as a given task has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting plans, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only a click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the package that you’ve opted for during the registration process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a given account anymore, you can just delete it and block individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT expert departs your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An in-depth Help library that comprises tutorial videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we are offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you order and which Control Panel you choose on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have registered or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want several persons to be able to connect to the web content inside it using their very own log-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate interface.
