FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of transmitting web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages offered by our company will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to run multiple Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them updated with ease. If you give the login information to another individual for a particular task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans are amazingly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting numerous Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a hosting account previously, you can check out our in-depth video tutorials, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from our company, you will be provided with the possibility to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter the Control Panel that you have chosen during the registration process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for every site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you wish to permit a number of individuals to access that folder with their own personal log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything is done through a simple-to-navigate GUI and takes only a few mouse clicks.
