Learn more about what FTP actually is, what it can do and what is the benefit of acquiring multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transmitting files to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux shared website hosting packages
that we offer, as we have chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can manage numerous sites at once or grant other people access to multiple folders. Once a certain job has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with several clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a given account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a designer who’s finished with the site and you do not want them to connect to your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created different tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you’ve never used a website hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server
packages that we are offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you get and which hosting Control Panel you select during the order process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will have FTP access to the virtual server without installing any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even multiple FTP accounts for a single directory – in case you want different individuals to connect to the content inside it using their very own personal sign-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks via an easy-to-work-with web-based interface.
