FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used methods for sending web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will handle all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the best solution particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you encounter any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a given account or to modify its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve compiled a number of tutorial videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts if you’ve never used a web hosting package before.
