FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to transfer website content to a hosting account. With an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. You need three things in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have any impediment.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans
are incredibly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting lots of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can watch our detailed how-to videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which Control Panel you pick during the VPS order process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you will have FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle which comes with the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you host or even different accounts for one single folder – if you want several individuals to be able to connect to the web content in it with their very own login details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than several clicks via an easy-to-work-with web-based interface.
