FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for exchanging web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other content in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you need at any given moment. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have chosen at signup, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a specific account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT individual retires from your firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files any longer. An in-depth Help library that includes educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess prior experience.
