Learn more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the advantage of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular means of transmitting files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There are a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal solution in case you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux cloud hosting
offered by our company, since we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple sites simultaneously or provide other people with access to multiple directories. Once a particular job has been carried out and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete the account with several clicks and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
are extremely powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a vast number of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
