FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used methods of transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There are several pluses of employing FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the perfect option especially if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared website hosting that we’re offering, as we have chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites simultaneously or grant other people access to different folders. As soon as a certain job has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can update the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated plan that you have chosen on the order page, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a specific account any longer, you can simply delete it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT specialist quits the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. An extensive Help library that contains how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any prior experience.
