FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most commonly used ways to transfer website files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download when there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the very best solution if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud website hosting plans offered by our company, since we have chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can have numerous sites all at once or provide other individuals with access to different directories. Once a given job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with several clicks and quit worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a certain account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without effort if you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a web developer who is finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we have shot a number of tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts if you’ve never used a web hosting package previously.

Any of the 3 Control Panels will provide you with the option to set up, to modify or to delete an FTP account in a couple of easy steps and with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse, so even if you don’t possess any past experience, you’ll be able to administer an FTP account with no effort.
