Discover FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for sending web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Each of the cloud website hosting
plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple Internet sites at the same time and to keep them updated without effort. In case you give the login info to another person for a particular task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you’ve chosen during the signup process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a specific account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT specialist departs your firm and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help library that includes how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have no past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we are offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the VPS order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll receive FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software stack which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you host or even several accounts for a single folder – in case you want a number of individuals to access the web content in it using their own sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface.
