FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for transferring files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done using an intuitive interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have elaborate help articles, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any problem.
FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
None of the Linux VPS web hosting that we are offering includes any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an account for any website hosted on the virtual machine, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you sign up – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several individuals to be able to connect to the exact same folder using their own set of sign-in details, for example, it’ll take several clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any predicament, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
