FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous means of exchanging web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will cope with the rest. There are several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume an upload/download when there is a problem with the connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the very best option when you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design app pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to maintain numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to update them without efforts. If you give the login details to some other person to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have picked during the signup process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you like via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a particular account any longer, you can simply delete it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT professional quits the company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An extensive Help database that contains educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess previous experience.
