FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread methods for exchanging website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our cloud website hosting plans. This feature isn’t limited, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can access. Useful options such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP programs are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you’ve chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a particular account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT professional quits your firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. A comprehensive Help repository that includes how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have any prior experience.
