FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread means of transferring web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. In case you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you experience any impediment.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans are astonishingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a large number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to change it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up an account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account previously, you can watch our exhaustive tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll get the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS setups, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you have selected during the registration process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you would like to allow a number of individuals to connect to that folder using their own personal login credentials. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, as everything’s done through a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
