File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most famous methods of transmitting files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume a download/upload if there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the perfect option especially when you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux cloud hosting packages
offered by our company, as we have decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites at the same time or grant other people access to different directories. As soon as a certain job has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one click of the mouse 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 Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
are quite powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a lot of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account previously, you can check our elaborate tutorial videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server
from our company, you’ll have the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, regardless of which Control Panel you have chosen during the signup process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Depending on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for each Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to allow a number of individuals to be able to connect to that folder using their very own log-in credentials. Even if you have never used a hosting account previously or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the VPS server, as everything is done through a simple-to-navigate interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
