FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of sending web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any obstacle.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve chosen during the order process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll 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 like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a designer or if an IT specialist exits your company and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. An elaborate Help repository that contains tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any past experience.
