File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most popular means for sending web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re several benefits of using FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload when there is some problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the best option especially when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Any of the shared website hosting plans that we offer will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain multiple websites at once and to keep them up to date with ease. If you give the login information to some other individual for a particular task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you do not require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have created different how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a website hosting plan previously.
