FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread means for transferring web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There are a number of advantages of using FTP, among them the option to resume an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection or the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each of the shared web hosting packages that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to grant other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to maintain numerous sites at the same time and to keep them up to date with no effort. In case you give the login details to some other individual for a given task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated services are pretty powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a huge number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. In addition, you can set up a new account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can watch our detailed instructional video clips, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.
