File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most widely used ways to send website files between a computer and a 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 will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using FTP, including the ability to restart an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use 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, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect option when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting packages offered by us will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software program installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run multiple websites all at once and to keep them updated with ease. If you give the login information to another person to perform a certain task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts that can access the same folder – if you want different individuals to be able to connect to the same content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not include any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to modify your websites without a hitch. In case you would like to stop the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP clients. In addition, we have in-depth step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
