Discover FTP accounts and about FTP in general - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular means for exchanging files between a PC and a web server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using FTP, including the ability to resume an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best option particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux shared web hosting
that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can manage numerous Internet sites all at once or grant other people access to different directories. Once a certain task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
are quite powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an enormous number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can check out our in-depth how-to video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.
