FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular means of exchanging website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There’re several pros of using FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the perfect solution especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. If you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account anymore or if 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 Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a huge number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can check out our elaborate educational video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
