What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread means for transmitting website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There are several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting
packages offered by us will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to manage multiple websites at the same time and to keep them updated effortlessly. In case you provide the login details to some other person to do a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages
are very powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting many Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. Also, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can check out our comprehensive video tutorials, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server
plans offered by our company will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer 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 – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software suite which comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even different FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want a number of persons to connect to the website content in it with their own set of login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a couple of mouse clicks via an easy-to-navigate web interface.
