FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous methods for uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, among them the option to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux shared website hosting packages that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous websites simultaneously or grant other people access to different directories. Once a given job has been completed and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the FTP account or you can just delete that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts that can access the very same folder – in case you would like different individuals to be able to access the exact same website content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages do not involve any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to modify your sites without a hitch. In case you’d like to stop the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP client applications. What’s more, we have elaborate help articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
