Understand more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the main advantage of acquiring multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means of sending web files to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the shared plans
that we offer, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage numerous websites at once or provide other individuals with access to different directories. As soon as a specific job has been done and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you have chosen during the subscription process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT professional exits the company and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help database that comprises educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the VPS web hosting plans
that we offer includes a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on your VPS server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you join – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of people to set up an FTP connection to one and the same directory with their own personal log-in credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any difficulty, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
