FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread ways to transfer files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will deal with all the rest. There are a number of advantages of using FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the ideal option if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting plans that we offer will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other people access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design program installed on your personal computer, you will be able to administer numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them without any effort. In case you provide the login info to another individual to carry out a particular task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve selected during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can simply remove it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT professional quits your company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help database that comprises tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have any past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we offer will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the server order procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the VPS without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even several accounts for one single directory – in case you want different individuals to connect to the website content inside it using their own set of login details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than several clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-use graphical interface.
