Understand more about what FTP is, what it does and what is the benefit of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular method for sending web content to a hosting account. With an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are required to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any difficulties.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even separate accounts that can access the same directory – in case you wish different people to be able to connect to the exact same web content with entirely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
do not include a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to modify your sites with no effort. If you’d 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 with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will 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-config file for different FTP software applications. What’s more, we have elaborate help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Accounts in VPS
The virtual private server
packages offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which Control Panel you select on the order form – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll gain FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even multiple FTP accounts for a single directory – in case you want several individuals to be able to connect to the website content inside it using their own personal login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface.
