FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for uploading website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux cloud web hosting that we offer, since we’ve decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can manage numerous websites at once or provide other persons with access to different folders. As soon as a particular task has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting that we are offering includes any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for each website hosted on the Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will select when you subscribe – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want several individuals to set up a connection to the same folder using their very own log-in details, for example, it’ll take several clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not come across any impediment, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
