FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used methods of transmitting files between a computer and a server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download in case there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly in case you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our Linux website hosting packages. This service isn’t limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have set up and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP client applications are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, since we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a particular account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve created different video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a hosting package previously.
