FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods for transmitting web files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There are several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the best solution when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given time. If you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you run into any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t put a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to update its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a designer who is done with the website and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have prepared different educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a web hosting plan before.
