FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous ways to transmit web files between a computer and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given time. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you encounter any impediments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t limited this feature with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without effort in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a designer who is done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For your convenience, we have compiled a number of video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting package before.
