FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used means for transferring website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing FTP, including the option to restart a download/upload when there is a problem with the connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the perfect solution in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering, since we have decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run multiple sites simultaneously or give other individuals access to different directories. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you would not like that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time.
