FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread means of sending website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are a number of advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart a download/upload when there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best option particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an extensive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you run into any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts that can access the exact same folder – in case you wish different users to be able to access the exact same web content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t involve a limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to modify your Internet sites effortlessly. In case you’d like to restrict the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP client applications. What’s more, we’ve prepared detailed help articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
