FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for uploading website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Each of the website hosting packages that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software program pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to administer multiple Internet sites all at once and to update them effortlessly. If you provide the login information to another person to carry out a particular task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular account or to change its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you no longer need it – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve selected a number of educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts if you have never used a website hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we are offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick at signup – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will gain FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software stack which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even multiple FTP accounts for a single folder – in case you want a number of people to be able to connect to the web content in it with their very own set of sign-in details. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a few mouse clicks via a user-friendly GUI.
