FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular methods for transmitting files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re several advantages of using FTP, including the option to restart a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the very best option particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting packages that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other people with access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to maintain numerous sites at once and to keep them up to date without effort. If you provide the login details to another individual to carry out a certain task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you have picked during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist retires from the firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. A detailed Help section that contains educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have any prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages offered by us will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you select upon signup – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll acquire FTP access to the virtual server without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software stack which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even different accounts for a single folder – if you want several individuals to access the website content inside it using their own personal sign-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of mouse clicks via an intuitive web interface.
