File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most popular methods of transmitting files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are a number of pros of using FTP, among them the ability to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design application pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without effort. If you provide the login credentials to some other individual to perform a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a few clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve picked at signup, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and block persons who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT person quits the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An exhaustive Help library that comprises how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages offered by our company will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the registration procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll acquire FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software bundle that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even separate accounts for a single directory – in case you want different people to connect to the content inside it using their own sign-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than several mouse clicks through a simple-to-navigate web interface.
