What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most famous means of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing FTP, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option 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, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Any of the shared hosting
packages offered by our company will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to give other people access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design software program pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to administer multiple websites at the same time and to update them without any efforts. If you provide the login information to another person for a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans
are truly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a huge number of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account before, you can check our detailed instructional videos, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
