Learn more about what FTP actually is, what it does and what is the advantage of acquiring multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for sending content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as personal details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux shared web hosting
that we offer, because we’ve decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have multiple Internet sites all at once or give other persons access to multiple directories. Once a specific task has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage different 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
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers
are very powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account before, you can check out our elaborate instructional video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from us, you will have the opportunity to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, no matter the Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the VPS order process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your necessities, you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – if you wish to permit different users to access that folder with their own set of log-in details. Even if you have never had a website hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything is done via a simple-to-use web interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
