Find out about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will require them.
FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method of sending web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud website hosting plans
offered by our company, since we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites all at once or provide other individuals with access to separate directories. Once a given job has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just delete the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting packages, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only a click to administer various 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 Servers
With our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even multiple accounts that can access one and the same directory – in case you want several people to be able to connect to the very same website content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans
do not have a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to update your sites without efforts. If you’d like to stop the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account completely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP client applications. Also, we’ve compiled detailed step-by-step articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans offered by our company will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server package you purchase and which Control Panel you select during the VPS order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the machine without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software stack that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even different accounts for one single folder – in case you want a number of people to be able to access the web content in it using their very own log-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use interface.
