FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used methods of uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to 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 best 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 applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our hosting service. This functionality is not restricted, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one mouse click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software programs are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t set a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have prepared a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a hosting package before.
