What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most popular means for exchanging files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re several pluses of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload when there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our shared website hosting plans
. This service is not restricted, so with our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just a click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and the folders that they can connect to. Handy functions such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP software apps are also only a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans
are truly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting multiple Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided 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 Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account previously, you can check our comprehensive tutorial videos, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you buy and which Control Panel you choose upon registration – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software suite which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want different individuals to connect to the web content in it with their very own personal log-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few mouse clicks through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
