FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used means for transferring web files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have detailed help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you experience any problem.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a given FTP account or to modify its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease if you no longer require it – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve made a number of how-to video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a web hosting service previously.
