Understand more about what FTP actually is, what it does and what is the main benefit of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular method of sending files to a hosting account. With an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with any of our Linux cloud plans
. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can access. Handy options such as updating the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP clients are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers
are astonishingly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an enormous number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can check our detailed instructional videos, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
The VPS server
plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the server order procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even several accounts for one single directory – in case you want a number of users to access the web content in it with their own personal login details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of mouse clicks via a simple-to-navigate web interface.
