FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread means for transferring web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best option 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 such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Any of the cloud web hosting packages offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software program pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous sites at the same time and to keep them updated without effort. In case you give the login credentials to another individual to carry out a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you have picked on the order page, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a certain account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist retires from your company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help repository that comprises educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any past experience.
