File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is one of the most widespread means for transmitting web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will do the rest. There’re several pros of using FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to 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-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the perfect option particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our Linux cloud hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks done. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the folders that they can access. Useful options such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP apps are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve chosen on the order page, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a particular account any longer, you can simply delete it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT expert exits your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An extensive Help repository that includes educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have prior experience.
