File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most commonly used means for transferring files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will handle all the rest. There’re several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the perfect solution particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux hosting service offered by us, as we have decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can have multiple websites simultaneously or give other individuals access to separate folders. Once a specific task has been completed and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just delete the account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve picked at signup, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you wish from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can just remove it and block persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT specialist departs the company and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. A detailed Help database that contains tutorial videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll be given FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software suite which comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want several users to be able to connect to the web content inside it using their very own set of log-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface.
