FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular means for sending website files between a PC and a server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the cloud web hosting plans that we’re offering, since we’ve decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can manage multiple websites all at once or grant other individuals access to multiple folders. Once a specific job has been accomplished and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete the account with several clicks and quit worrying about anybody using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting packages, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even multiple accounts that can access one and the same folder – in case you want different people to be able to access the very same content with different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not include a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to modify your sites effortlessly. If you wish to limit the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP software applications. Furthermore, we’ve compiled exhaustive help articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
