FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used methods of transmitting files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several advantages of using FTP, including the possibility to restart a download/upload when there’s a problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best option especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you run into any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts with access to the same folder – in case you wish several persons to be able to access the exact same website content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not include any limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your website files and to modify your Internet sites effortlessly. If you’d like to limit the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account completely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP 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. What’s more, we have comprehensive step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
