Understand more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the benefit of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used methods for sending website files between a computer and a server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download if there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the shared hosting
offered by us, as we have chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can manage multiple sites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to different directories. As soon as a particular job has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse 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 Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have opted for during the registration process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a specific account any longer, you can simply remove it and stop individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is especially useful if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT specialist quits the firm and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. An elaborate Help repository that comprises tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server
from our company, you’ll be given the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, irrespective of which Control Panel you have selected on the order form – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your demands, you can set up a different FTP account for every site or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you want to permit several individuals to be able to connect to that folder with their very own log-in details. Even if you have never used a hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, since everything is done through a user-friendly graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks.
