FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread ways to transfer web files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the best option in case you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. If you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a detailed Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any obstacles.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a certain account or to modify its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without any effort if you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a designer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to access your website files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve created a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a website hosting package previously.
