FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular means for uploading and downloading web files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart a download/upload when there’s some problem with the connection and the option to use 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, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution especially if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our hosting
. This functionality is not limited, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks done. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one mouse click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful options such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP client applications are also just one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
are amazingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting multiple websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you have never opened a web hosting account before, you can watch our elaborate educational videos, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers
that we offer has a limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for each site hosted on your server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several persons to be able to establish a connection to the very same directory with their very own set of log-in details, for example, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not come across any complication, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
