Understand more about what FTP really is, what it can do and what is the main benefit of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread ways to exchange files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There’re several benefits of employing FTP, among them the option to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the perfect option especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux web hosting services
that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can run numerous websites all at once or give other people access to different directories. Once a specific job has been done and you do not want that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply delete the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we have shot different instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the VPS web hosting services
offered by our company includes any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for each website hosted on the VPS, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want different persons to make a connection to the same folder with their own set of login credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any predicament, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
