FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used means for sending website files between a computer and a server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will do the rest. There’re several benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection and the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best option particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. 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 straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a designer has done their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you come across any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t put a restriction on this service with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your website files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve prepared different video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a hosting plan before.
