Understand more about what FTP is, what it does and what is the main advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular way to transfer files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface 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 wish to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given moment. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an extensive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you experience any problem.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
are pretty powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting lots of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to change it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up the account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can check out our comprehensive tutorial videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS servers
that we offer has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for any website hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want several individuals to establish an FTP connection to the very same folder using their own sign-in credentials, for example, it’ll take several mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not experience any complication, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
