File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is one of the most widely used methods for transferring web files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our cloud hosting. This functionality is not limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Handy functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP applications are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have chosen during the registration process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a certain account any longer, you can just remove it and stop people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT person retires from the firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An in-depth Help repository that contains tutorial videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have no previous experience.
