File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most popular means of exchanging 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 entire directories in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart a download/upload in case there is a problem with the connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal option when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our Linux web hosting packages. This service is not limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can connect to. Useful functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP programs are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have chosen during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a particular account any longer, you can just delete it and stop people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT person departs the company and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. An in-depth Help library that comprises how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess any previous experience.
