FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods of transmitting web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There’re several advantages of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use 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, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal option if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you have any difficulties.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are amazingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a vast number of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a web hosting account before, you can check out our detailed tutorial videos, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.
