File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular means for transmitting content to a hosting account. With an FTP program that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide someone with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the shared hosting that we are offering, because we have chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can have multiple Internet sites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific job has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you’ve selected on the order form, 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 allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account any longer, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert quits your company and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. An extensive Help database that comprises video tutorials will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers that we’re offering has a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you register – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of individuals to be able to set up an FTP connection to the very same directory with their own set of login credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any complications, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
