What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for uploading files to a hosting account. With an FTP client that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux web hosting
that we offer, since we have decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites simultaneously or give other individuals access to different folders. Once a certain job has been done and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you would like different persons to be able to connect to the very same website content with different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers
don’t have a restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to update your websites with no effort. In case you would like to stop the access to your web content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP client applications. Furthermore, we’ve got comprehensive step-by-step articles and how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from our company, you will have the possibility to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, no matter the Control Panel that you have selected during the order procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your needs, you can create a different FTP account for each website or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – if you’d like to allow a number of persons to be able to access that folder with their very own log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, as everything’s done via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
