FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used ways to transfer files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will do the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s a 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 particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the best option especially when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a detailed Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this feature with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without effort in case you no longer need it – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we have made different tutorial videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a hosting package before.
