File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most widespread ways to transfer files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the ideal option if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an extensive Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any obstacle.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are really powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a lot of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to change it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you have never had a hosting account previously, you can check out our in-depth tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
