FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous method of transferring web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design program pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to maintain multiple sites all at once and to keep them up to date without a hitch. If you provide the login details to some other individual to do a specific task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a restriction on this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a certain account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have created a number of tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS servers with our company and select any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your VPS, since it’s part of the basic software suite that comes with all servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will permit you to create as many FTP accounts as you like and to specify the directory that each one of them can connect to. If you want, you can even set up separate FTP accounts for the same domain and give different people their very own set of login details to access the website content. Each of the 3 hosting Control Panels will provide you with the opportunity to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in several easy steps and with less than a few clicks, so even in case you do not have any prior experience, you’ll be able to administer an FTP account effortlessly.
