Understand more about what FTP actually is, what it can do and what is the main benefit of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most famous methods for transmitting files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will handle all the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the ideal option when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the shared hosting services
offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous sites simultaneously or grant other people access to separate directories. Once a particular job has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated services
are rather powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting many websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a restriction on 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 shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check out our elaborate educational video clips, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
With a virtual private server
from us, you will get the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS setups, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected at signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can create a different FTP account for each website or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to permit different people to access that folder using their own personal log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the virtual server, since everything is done via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
