What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular ways to send web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the perfect option in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the package that you have chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT expert exits the company and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help library that contains instructional videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have past experience.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we’re offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you buy and which Control Panel you choose during the registration process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the VPS server without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even different FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want different people to be able to access the website content in it with their very own personal login details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-use graphical interface.
