FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used means for sending website files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will handle all the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, including the option to restart an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With 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, email accounts or other information, which makes it the best solution if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering, since we have chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can run multiple Internet sites simultaneously or grant other people access to separate folders. Once a given job has been completed and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting packages, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a developer who is done with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have created different video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a hosting package previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
In case you open a Linux virtual private servers with us and pick any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we are offering – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it’s part of the software stack that comes with all virtual servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will permit you to create as many FTP accounts as you need and to pick which folder each of them can access. If you wish, you can even create separate FTP accounts for the very same domain and give several people their own login details to access the content. Each of the three hosting Control Panels will provide you with the ability to create, to edit or to remove an FTP account in a couple of easy steps and with no more than several clicks, so even in case you don’t possess any prior experience, you’ll be able to manage an FTP account without a hitch.
