FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while 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 whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same folder – in case you wish different users to be able to connect to the exact same web content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated plans do not include any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to update your Internet sites with no effort. If you want to restrict the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP clients. In addition, we’ve got in-depth help articles and how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
