File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most commonly used methods of sending website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the ideal option especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the shared website hosting plans that we are offering, since we have chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can run numerous sites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. Once a given job has been accomplished and you would not like that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can modify the password for the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts that can access one and the same directory – if you want several users to be able to connect to the exact same content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated plans don’t have any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to modify your sites with ease. If you wish to restrict the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account completely with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP client programs. Furthermore, we have prepared comprehensive help articles and video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.
