File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular means of transferring web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP program 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 want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using a user-friendly GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with any of our website hosting service. This functionality is not limited, so using our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one click through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can connect to. Useful options such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP clients are also just a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not restricted this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a given account or to edit its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a designer who’s finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your website files any longer. For your convenience, we have created a number of how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS service that we are offering has any limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for any site hosted on the machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you order – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want several individuals to be able to access the very same folder using their own personal log-in details, for example, it will take several mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t experience any impediment, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
