FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for uploading website content to a hosting account. With an FTP software program that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to provide somebody with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. Three must-haves 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 Website Hosting
Each of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design program pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to administer multiple websites all at once and to keep them up to date effortlessly. In case you give the login info to some other person to carry out a given task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a couple of clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you’ve chosen upon signup, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a given account anymore, you can just remove it and stop people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT expert quits the firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An extensive Help database that contains educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any prior experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from our company, you’ll be given the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS server packages, irrespective of the Control Panel that you’ve selected during the subscription process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for each website or several accounts with access to a given folder – in case you would like to permit a number of people to connect to that folder using their very own log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual server, since everything’s done via a simple-to-navigate interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
