What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous means for transferring web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using an intuitive interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud website hosting
offered by us, since we have chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites at the same time or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. As soon as a certain task has been completed and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services
are truly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a large number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up an account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a hosting account previously, you can watch our exhaustive video tutorials, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS
With a virtual private server
from us, you’ll get the opportunity to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you have selected during the subscription procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your demands, you can set up a separate FTP account for every website or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you would like to allow several people to be able to access that folder using their very own log-in credentials. Even if you have never had a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything’s done through a simple-to-use web-based interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
