FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous methods for uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re several pluses of employing FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the best option especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer, because we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous sites at once or grant other individuals access to separate folders. As soon as a given job has been accomplished and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages, will allow you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are stunningly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a large number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check out our in-depth instructional videos, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
