Discover more about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will require them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous methods for transferring web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There’re several advantages of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload if there is some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best solution especially if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to resort to third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you come across any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve picked during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you wish from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a particular account anymore, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT person quits your firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. An elaborate Help section that contains instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have any previous experience.
