FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used methods of sending website files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will do all the rest. There are several benefits of employing FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the perfect solution particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to your website 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 accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a given account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts if you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a designer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot a number of how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a web hosting service previously.
