What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for uploading web content to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our Linux shared hosting
. This feature is not limited, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a web designer 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 mouse click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the folders that they can access. Handy functions such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP client programs are also just one click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve selected during the order process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist exits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help library that includes tutorial videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server
plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you purchase and which Control Panel you select during the signup process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will get FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even several accounts for a single directory – in case you want several individuals to connect to the web content in it using their very own set of login details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few mouse clicks via a user-friendly web-based interface.
