FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous methods for uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution especially if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any complications.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts that can access the exact same directory – if you would like different users to be able to access the exact same website content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers do not involve a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your website files and to modify your websites effortlessly. If you would like to stop the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account completely with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP applications. In addition, we’ve compiled exhaustive step-by-step articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.
