FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to upload and download website files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you come across any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a given account or to modify its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected a number of video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a website hosting package before.
