FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used methods for exchanging web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There’re several benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the very best option when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, 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 displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you run into any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a certain account or to update its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts if you do not require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your website files any longer. For your convenience, we have prepared a number of tutorial videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a website hosting package previously.
