FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread ways to exchange web files between a PC and a server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re several advantages of using FTP, including the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the best option especially when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design app installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run numerous Internet sites at once and to keep them updated with no effort. If you give the login info to some other person to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you have picked at signup, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you need from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account anymore, you can just delete it and stop people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT expert departs the firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help repository that contains how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server from us, you will be given the possibility to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server plans, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve picked upon registration – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you’d like to allow a number of individuals to be able to connect to that folder using their own personal sign-in details. Even if you have never used a web hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the server, since everything is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
