FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used ways to send files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal solution if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared hosting offered by our company, as we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can have numerous websites simultaneously or provide other individuals with access to separate directories. Once a certain task has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting packages, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers that we offer includes any cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each site hosted on your server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you subscribe – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of people to be able to access the exact same folder using their very own set of login details, for instance, it will take a couple of mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any predicaments, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
