FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means of transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will cope with the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you run into any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even multiple accounts with access to the very same directory – if you want different persons to be able to access the same web content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans don’t have a restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to modify your websites effortlessly. If you want to restrict the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP programs. What’s more, we’ve got elaborate help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
