Learn more about what FTP actually is, what it does and what is the advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread means for transferring web files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the best solution particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting
plans that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to grant other persons access to any website in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your home computer, you will be able to manage multiple websites simultaneously and to keep them updated without efforts. If you provide the login credentials to another person to carry out a specific task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t restricted this functionality with any of our plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a certain account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts if you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a developer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled different how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a web hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS hosting plans
with us and choose any of the 3 Control Panels that we are offering – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, an FTP server will be installed on your machine, since it is an essential part of the software suite that comes with all servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will permit you to set up as many FTP accounts as you want and to select what directory each one of them will access. If you wish, you can even create several FTP accounts for the exact same domain and give several people their own log-in details to connect to the web content. Each of the three Control Panels will give you the option to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with less than a couple of clicks, so even in case you do not have any prior experience, you’ll be able to manage an account in a seamless way.
