Learn more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the main advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most widespread methods of uploading and downloading web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will handle the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect solution if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Each of the website hosting
plans that we’re offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without any effort. In case you provide the login information to another individual to carry out a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts with access to one and the same folder – if you wish several users to be able to access the very same website content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers
don’t have any limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to modify your websites without efforts. In case you want to stop the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a few mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP client programs. Also, we have prepared comprehensive step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you select during the signup process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll gain FTP access to the machine without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software stack that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even separate accounts for a single directory – in case you want several persons to be able to connect to the website content inside it with their very own sign-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few mouse clicks via an intuitive graphical interface.
