FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous methods for sending files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the perfect option especially if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have any problem.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated services are truly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an immense number of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to change it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a hosting account before, you can watch our exhaustive instructional videos, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
None of the VPS hosting services that we’re offering has any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an account for each website hosted on the virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you register – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of people to make an FTP connection to the exact same folder using their very own set of login details, for instance, it will take a few mouse clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t run into any impediment, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
