FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used ways to send website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the best option in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with any of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can access. Useful options such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP software apps are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are truly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an immense number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a hosting account before, you can check out our comprehensive tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll get the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve chosen during the VPS order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for every Internet site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to permit a number of persons to be able to access that folder with their own set of login details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS server, since everything is done via an easy-to-use interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
