Discover FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will require them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread methods of exchanging website files between a PC and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will cope with all the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with each of our Linux shared website hosting packages
. This feature isn’t limited, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the folders that they can access. Handy functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP client apps are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
are amazingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an enormous number of sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you have never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check our exhaustive educational videos, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS
None of the Linux VPS packages
that we’re offering has any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each site hosted on your VPS server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want different individuals to be able to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory with their very own set of log-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any complication, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
