FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transferring website files to a hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select during the VPS order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll have FTP access to the virtual machine without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software stack which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even separate FTP accounts for a single directory – in case you want several people to be able to access the website content inside it with their very own sign-in details. With each of the Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface.
