FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used methods for exchanging web files between a computer and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, including the possibility to restart a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage 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 Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are quite powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a large number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to change it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a web hosting account before, you can check our elaborate instructional videos, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.
