Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for transmitting web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, including private details. Three things are obligatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting
plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software program installed on your home PC, you will be able to manage numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them without any efforts. If you provide the login info to another person to carry out a particular task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
are exceptionally powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a huge number of sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to change it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you have never had a hosting account before, you can watch our detailed educational videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we’re offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select during the registration process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll obtain FTP access to the virtual server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for one single folder – in case you want different persons to access the web content inside it with their very own personal login details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few clicks via an easy-to-navigate web interface.
