FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used ways to transfer web files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the ability 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, emails or any other info, which makes it the perfect option if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. If you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you experience any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an extensive number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to change it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a web hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive tutorial video clips, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
