FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for uploading web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide someone with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are necessary to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the hosting plans
that we are offering, because we have decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites simultaneously or give other individuals access to multiple directories. As soon as a specific task has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can edit the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to manage different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a specific account or to edit its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without effort if you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the site and you don’t want them to connect to your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected different tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a website hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from us, you’ll get the option to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS plans, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve chosen upon registration – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your demands, you can create a different FTP account for every Internet site or several accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to allow several individuals to be able to access that folder with their own personal login details. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account previously or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your server, since everything is done through a simple-to-use web interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
