File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most widespread means of sending files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using FTP, among them the ability to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the best option especially when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the web hosting plans that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or grant other individuals access to separate folders. Once a specific job has been carried out and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are amazingly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an extensive number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on 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 platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit 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 installing it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a web hosting account before, you can check out our exhaustive how-to videos, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
