What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular way to transmit web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting
plans that we’re offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other people with access to any website in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software application installed on your home PC, you will be able to administer multiple websites simultaneously and to keep them updated effortlessly. In case you provide the login info to another individual for a certain task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have selected on the order page, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a particular account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT specialist retires from your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An exhaustive Help section that comprises video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server
plans that we are offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you purchase and which Control Panel you choose during the registration procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll obtain FTP access to the server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software stack which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even different FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want several persons to connect to the website content inside it using their own set of sign-in details. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than several mouse clicks through a simple-to-navigate interface.
