Discover FTP accounts and about FTP in general - what they are and when you will need them.
File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is one of the most commonly used methods of sending files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re several benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best option particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without having to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our web hosting
. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP client apps are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a given account or to modify its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort if you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who is done with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have made a number of instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a web hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers
that we are offering includes a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for each website hosted on the machine, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you register – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want different individuals to be able to connect to one and the same folder with their very own log-in details, for example, it’ll take several mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any predicaments, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
