FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most commonly used ways to send web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There are several pluses of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download when there’s a problem with the connection and 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, email accounts or other info, which makes it the very best option especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the shared plans that we offer, because we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can maintain numerous Internet sites all at once or grant other people access to separate folders. Once a certain job has been completed and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one click to administer different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts that can access the exact same folder – in case you would like different individuals to be able to connect to the same web content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated plans do not involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to modify your sites without efforts. In case you would like to restrict the access to your website content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account with no more than a couple of clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP clients. Furthermore, we have exhaustive step-by-step articles and educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.
