FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular ways to exchange files between a computer and a server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best solution especially when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our shared hosting plans. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can access. Useful options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP apps are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you wish different persons to be able to connect to the very same web content with entirely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans do not involve any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to modify your websites with ease. In case you’d like to stop the access to your web content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP software programs. What’s more, we have prepared elaborate step-by-step articles and educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
