FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method for sending content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP 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 a third party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. You need three prerequisites to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Each of the cloud website hosting plans offered by us will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software app pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them updated without any efforts. If you give the login credentials to some other individual to perform a given task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting plenty of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a hosting account before, you can watch our elaborate educational video clips, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers offered by us has any limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an account for any Internet site hosted on your virtual server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want several people to connect to the exact same folder with their very own log-in details, for example, it will take several mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you will not experience any difficulty, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
