FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used methods for sending files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best solution especially when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the shared website hosting that we offer, since we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can run multiple Internet sites at the same time or grant other persons access to different folders. As soon as a specific job has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just delete that account with a few clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a large number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account before, you can watch our detailed educational video clips, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.
