FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most famous means of transferring website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the perfect solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. In case you do not want to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any difficulties.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even multiple accounts with access to the very same folder – if you wish different users to be able to access the same website content with entirely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages do not involve a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to update your sites without any effort. If you want to restrict the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP apps. In addition, we have comprehensive help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
