File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most widespread means for exchanging website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload when there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared website hosting offered by us, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can have multiple sites all at once or provide other persons with access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific job has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you would like several people to be able to access the same web content with completely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not include any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your files and to update your websites without effort. If you’d like to restrict the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP clients. Also, we have prepared comprehensive step-by-step articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
