FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular methods of exchanging website files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the best option particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Any of the shared web hosting packages offered by our company will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any website in your website hosting account. If you have a web design software program pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple sites at once and to update them without effort. If you give the login details to some other person to do a particular task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to modify its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with no effort if you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your web files any longer. For your convenience, we have made different how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a web hosting plan previously.
