FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread means for exchanging files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will cope with all the rest. There are several pros of using FTP, including the option to restart an upload/download if there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the best option particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with any of our Linux shared hosting. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only a click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP client applications are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a given FTP account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot different tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a web hosting package previously.
