FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread ways to exchange files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will do the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the ideal option when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our shared website hosting plans. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what directories they can access. Useful functions such as updating the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP client applications are also just a mouse click away.

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 wish, even different accounts with access to one and the same folder – in case you want different persons to be able to access the very same website content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not include a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you will be able to administer your files and to update your websites with no effort. In case you’d like to restrict the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP client applications. In addition, we have compiled elaborate help articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
