Learn more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the advantage of using multiple FTP Accounts.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most widespread means for transmitting files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection or the option to use 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 option when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared hosting packages
offered by us, as we have chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can manage multiple sites simultaneously or give other persons access to separate directories. As soon as a certain task has been fulfilled and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
are stunningly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to change it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account previously, you can watch our exhaustive how-to video clips, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
