FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular means of transferring files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There are a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the very best solution when you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Each of the website hosting packages offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application installed on your home computer, you will be able to manage numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them updated without effort. In case you provide the login information to another person for a particular task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you no longer require it – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have made a number of instructional videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a hosting package before.
