FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for uploading web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP application that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, such as personal details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our shared hosting
. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy options such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client applications are also only a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a particular account or to modify its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you no longer need it – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who is finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve prepared different educational videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a hosting service previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from our company, you’ll be provided with the ability to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the registration process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your demands, you can create a separate FTP account for each Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to allow different people to access that folder with their own log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything is done through a simple-to-navigate web-based interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
