FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few clicks. This is done using an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three things are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our Linux cloud web hosting service
. This functionality is not limited, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks done. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what directories they can connect to. Useful options such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP software programs are also just a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve opted for on the order form, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a specific account any longer, you can just delete it and block persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT expert leaves the company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An extensive Help section that comprises instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from us, you will have the ability to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, no matter which Control Panel you’ve selected during the order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you wish to allow different users to be able to connect to that folder using their own set of sign-in details. Even if you have never had a hosting account previously or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the VPS, as everything’s done via a user-friendly graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks.
