Find out about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used methods of transferring web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will do the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any difficulties.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
are quite powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a huge number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up an account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can check out our detailed educational video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
