File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous means for transmitting web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux shared website hosting service offered by us, because we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites simultaneously or grant other persons access to separate directories. Once a certain job has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can modify the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one click to administer different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even separate accounts that can access the exact same directory – if you would like different persons to be able to access the exact same web content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t involve any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your Internet sites without efforts. If you wish to stop the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account completely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP client programs. Furthermore, we’ve compiled detailed help articles and educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we are offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which package you purchase and which Control Panel you select during the VPS order procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll have FTP access to the machine without having to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the software suite which comes with the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even several FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want a number of individuals to access the content in it with their very own set of login credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via a user-friendly GUI.
