FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means for transferring website files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the best solution especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a certain account or to change its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For your convenience, we have selected different how-to video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a web hosting package previously.
