FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread ways to upload and download website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will do the rest. There are several pluses of employing FTP, including the ability to restart an upload/download in case there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting plans that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any site in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design program installed on your personal computer, you will be able to manage multiple sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without any effort. In case you provide the login information to some other person for a certain task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are rather powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a large number of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account before, you can check our exhaustive educational video clips, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the Linux VPS hosting that we offer has any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you register – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want different users to be able to establish a connection to the exact same directory using their very own set of login details, for instance, it will take several clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t come across any difficulty, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
