FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used methods for transmitting web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re several pros of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s a problem with the connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the best option especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Each of the cloud website hosting plans offered by us will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any site in your hosting account. If you have a web design software program pre-installed on your home PC, you will be able to administer numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without effort. In case you give the login information to some other individual to perform a given task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you do not require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve selected different educational video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a hosting plan previously.
