FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to transfer files to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. You need three things in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you come across any problem.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you’ll be provided with the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server packages, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve picked during the registration procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can have a different FTP account for each website or several FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you’d like to permit a number of users to be able to access that folder with their very own sign-in details. Even if you have never had a website hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything’s done via an easy-to-use interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
