FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most famous means for uploading and downloading files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will handle all the rest. There are several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download when there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the best option especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud web hosting packages
offered by us, since we have decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can run multiple sites all at once or give other people access to separate folders. Once a particular job has been carried out and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can change the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with several clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same directory – in case you want different individuals to be able to connect to the very same web content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
do not include any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to update your websites without any effort. In case you’d like to limit the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP client apps. Furthermore, we have detailed step-by-step articles and video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server
from us, you’ll have the chance to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, irrespective of which Control Panel you have chosen during the order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your necessities, you can set up a different FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to allow several people to be able to access that folder using their own log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your server, since everything’s done via a time and effort saving interface and takes just a few mouse clicks.
