What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most famous means of exchanging files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are several benefits of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting
plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to provide other persons with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your PC, you’ll be able to manage numerous Internet sites all at once and to keep them up to date without efforts. In case you provide the login details to some other individual for a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you no longer need it – for example, if you have hired a web developer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve compiled a number of how-to video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a hosting plan before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which plan you purchase and which Control Panel you select during the registration procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll be granted FTP access to the server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software suite that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even multiple accounts for a single folder – if you want a number of persons to be able to access the content in it using their own set of log-in details. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than several clicks of the mouse via an intuitive interface.
