FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for sending content to a hosting account. Using FTP client software that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages offered by us will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to grant other people access to any site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software application installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to run numerous websites at the same time and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you provide the login details to some other individual to perform a given task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a certain FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled different how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be given the opportunity to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, irrespective of which Control Panel you’ve chosen on the order page – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for each Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – if you wish to permit different people to access that folder with their very own log-in details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, since everything is done through an easy-to-use GUI and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
