FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread ways to upload and download website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are several advantages of using FTP, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each of the cloud web hosting packages that we are offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software app installed on your PC, you’ll be able to run multiple websites all at once and to keep them updated with no effort. If you provide the login credentials to some other person for a particular task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a given account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you no longer need it – for example, if you have hired a designer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve made a number of educational videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which package you purchase and which Control Panel you choose during the server order procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will obtain FTP access to the server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software stack which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even different accounts for a single folder – if you want several persons to access the content inside it using their own personal sign-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks via a simple-to-use interface.
