File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most widely used means for transmitting files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will do the rest. There are a number of pros of employing FTP, including the option to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly in case you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our website hosting plans. This functionality is not restricted, so using our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what directories they can connect to. Useful options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP programs are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve made different how-to video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a web hosting package before.
