FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to transmit web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are required in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the shared hosting
that we’re offering, because we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites at the same time or provide other people with access to different directories. As soon as a given task has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain account or to change its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you no longer require it – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have compiled different tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a website hosting package before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server
from us, you will be given the ability to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter which Control Panel you’ve selected upon signup – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can set up a separate FTP account for each website or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you wish to permit different persons to connect to that folder with their own personal log-in details. Even if you have never used a web hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your machine, since everything is done via a simple-to-use graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks.
