FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular means for uploading and downloading files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the ideal option in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Any of the cloud hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your PC, you will be able to run multiple sites at once and to keep them up to date effortlessly. In case you give the login info to some other person for a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a certain account or to modify its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account without effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a web hosting service before.

If you want, you can even set up separate accounts for one and the same domain and give a number of users their very own sign-in credentials to access the content. Each of the 3 Control Panels will provide you with the ability to set up, to modify or to delete an FTP account in a few simple steps and with no more than a couple of clicks, so even in case you’ve got no past experience, you will be able to administer an account without efforts.
