FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method for transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using a user-friendly GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the hosting
that we’re offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can manage multiple websites at the same time or provide other individuals with access to separate directories. As soon as a specific job has been accomplished and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just delete the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting service before.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS servers
with our company and choose any of the three hosting Control Panels that we are offering – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it’s an essential part of the software suite that comes with all servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will enable you to set up as many FTP accounts as you like and to select which folder each of them can access. If you want, you can even create separate FTP accounts for the very same domain name and give different people their own set of log-in details to connect to the content. Any of the three hosting Control Panels will provide you with the option to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with less than a few mouse clicks, so even in case you don’t possess any past experience, you will be able to manage an FTP account in a seamless fashion.
