File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous method of uploading web content to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. You need three things in order 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 Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design app installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple Internet sites all at once and to update them without efforts. If you provide the login info 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 entirely with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you have opted for at signup, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a developer or if an IT professional exits the company and you do not want them to connect to the web files any longer. A detailed Help database that includes educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have no previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
In case you open a VPS plans with us and choose any of the three Control Panels that we are offering – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is an integral part of the standard software pack that comes with all virtual servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will enable you to create as many FTP accounts as you would like and to select the folder that each one of them can access. If you wish, you can even set up multiple FTP accounts for the same domain name and give different persons their very own login credentials to access the web content. Each of the three Control Panels will offer you the chance to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in several simple steps and with no more than several clicks of the mouse, so even in case you do not possess any prior experience, you will be able to administer an account without any hassles.
