Learn more about what FTP actually is, what it can do and what is the main advantage of acquiring multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used means for uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There are a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download when there is some problem with the connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the best solution when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera.

account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve chosen upon signup, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account any longer, you can just delete it and block persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a developer or if an IT person retires from the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore.
