FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used means of transferring files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There are a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download if there is some problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the perfect option if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Any of the shared hosting packages that we offer will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software app pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous sites at once and to update them effortlessly. If you give the login information to some other individual for a particular task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an enormous number of 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 separate account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive how-to videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we offer will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which Control Panel you select during the VPS order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll acquire FTP access to the VPS without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the software suite which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even different accounts for a single folder – if you want several users to connect to the web content inside it with their own login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than several clicks through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface.
