FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods for uploading and downloading files between a PC and a web server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution particularly when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you encounter any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are exceptionally powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an extensive number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to modify it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up the account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a web hosting account before, you can watch our exhaustive how-to video clips, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.
