FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of transmitting content to a hosting account. With FTP software that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared website hosting
that we’re offering, because we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can maintain numerous Internet sites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to separate folders. As soon as a given task has been completed and you don’t want that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve picked on the order page, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a given account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a designer or if an IT person leaves the firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files any longer. An in-depth Help repository that includes video tutorials will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server
from our company, you will be provided with the chance to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter which Control Panel you have selected during the subscription process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for every site or several FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – if you would like to permit several individuals to be able to access that folder with their own personal log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the VPS server, as everything is done via a simple-to-work-with interface and takes just a couple of clicks.
