Discover more about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will require them.
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means for sending website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability 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, email accounts or other info, which makes it the very best option if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans
are really powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an enormous number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never used a hosting account previously, you can check our comprehensive video tutorials, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
