FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread methods for transferring web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not put a restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a given FTP account or to change its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you no longer require it – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected a number of tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.
