FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most widely used methods for transferring files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will handle the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download when there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or 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 such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you experience any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even different accounts that can access the same directory – if you would like several individuals to be able to access the very same website content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated plans do not involve any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to update your sites without effort. In case you wish to block the access to your website content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account completely with no more than a couple of clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP clients. Also, we’ve compiled exhaustive help articles and educational videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS plans offered by our company includes any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any website hosted on your server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. It also does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want different individuals to connect to the very same folder using their own personal sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a few mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t experience any impediment, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
