FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular means of sending website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting plans that we’re offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple websites at once and to keep them updated with ease. If you provide the login credentials to another person to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated packages are rather powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting plenty of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. Also, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can check out our elaborate how-to videos, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be given the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve chosen during the registration procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for each website or a number of FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you would like to allow a number of persons to access that folder using their own personal sign-in credentials. Even if you have never opened a website hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, as everything’s done via a simple-to-work-with web interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
