File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most commonly used ways to transmit web files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There’re several benefits of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have elaborate help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have opted for on the order form, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a given account any longer, you can just remove it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT expert retires from the company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help section that contains instructional videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have any past experience.
