File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most widespread means of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There’re several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there is some problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the best solution particularly when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with any of our Linux shared packages. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP software apps are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, since we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a given account or to change its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve created a number of video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a hosting service previously.
