What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most famous means for uploading and downloading files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re several advantages of employing FTP, among them the option to resume a download/upload if there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you come across any problem.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP regardless of the package that you’ve opted for upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and stop individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT expert quits the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help library that contains educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no prior experience.
