FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widely used means for transmitting web files between a computer and a server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload when there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best solution in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can access. 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 wish at any particular time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a particular account or to change its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to access your files anymore. For your convenience, we have selected different instructional videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a web hosting service previously.
