What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread means for transferring website files between a computer and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the website hosting
that we offer, as we have chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can manage multiple Internet sites at once or give other persons access to different folders. As soon as a particular job has been carried out and you do not want that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same directory – in case you want several users to be able to connect to the same website content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers
don’t have a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to update your sites effortlessly. If you would like to block the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a few clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software programs.
