FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used means of transmitting files between a PC and a server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the very best solution in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Any of the website hosting packages that we are offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other persons access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design app pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to administer numerous websites simultaneously and to update them without a hitch. In case you provide the login information to another person to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not restricted this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a given FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve prepared a number of how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting service before.

This will allow you to create as many FTP accounts as you wish and to choose what directory each of them can access. If you wish, you can even set up different FTP accounts for the very same domain and give different users their own personal sign-in credentials to access the web content. Any of the 3 Control Panels will provide you with the option to set up, to edit or to remove an FTP account in a couple of easy steps and with less than a couple of mouse clicks, so even in case you don’t have any prior experience, you will be able to manage an account without any efforts.
