FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widely used means for transmitting files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download when there is some problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to 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-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect option especially if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting plans that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design app installed on your home computer, you will be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them updated without effort. In case you give the login details to some other person to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated packages are truly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a huge number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check out our exhaustive video tutorials, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
