FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of sending web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our Linux web hosting
. This functionality is not limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client programs are also just one click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you have picked during the registration process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT individual retires from your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. An extensive Help library that contains educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS servers
that we’re offering includes a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you order – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to be able to establish an FTP connection to the very same directory with their very own set of sign-in details, for instance, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t run into any complication, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
