What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used ways to upload and download web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There’re several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart an upload/download if there is some problem with the connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the very best option particularly in case you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux cloud service
that we are offering, because we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites all at once or grant other persons access to multiple directories. As soon as a particular task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove that account with a few clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single click to manage various 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
Using our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even separate accounts with access to the same folder – in case you would like several users to be able to connect to the exact same website content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers
do not involve a limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to administer your website files and to modify your sites with ease. If you’d like to limit the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP software apps. Also, we’ve got in-depth step-by-step articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans that we offer will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you order and which Control Panel you select during the signup process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will obtain FTP access to the VPS without having to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the software suite which is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve got or even multiple FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want a number of people to connect to the web content in it using their very own personal log-in details. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks via an easy-to-use GUI.
