Learn more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the main benefit of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used means for transmitting files between a computer and a server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There are several pros of employing FTP, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the perfect solution if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you experience any impediment.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the package that you have picked during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a certain account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT professional quits the company and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help library that contains instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no previous experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from our company, you will get the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you have selected during the order procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Depending on your necessities, you can create a different FTP account for every site or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to allow several people to access that folder using their own personal sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never used a hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, as everything is done via an easy-to-use web-based interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
