FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means for sending web files between a PC and a server. With FTP software such as 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 itself will take care of all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux cloud hosting offered by us, because we have decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can maintain multiple websites at once or provide other individuals with access to different folders. As soon as a particular task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the package that you have picked on the order page, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a specific account anymore, you can just delete it and block people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT individual quits the firm and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. A comprehensive Help library that includes video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have any prior experience.
