Learn more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the main advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods for uploading and downloading files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart an upload/download if there is some problem with the connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our Linux shared hosting
. This feature isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just a click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can connect to. Handy functions such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP software applications are also only one mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
are amazingly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting many websites.

All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
