FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transferring website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you 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 preferred by a lot 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 instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse 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 to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given time. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a given account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled a number of educational video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting package previously.

Each of the three Control Panels will offer you the option to create, to modify or to delete an FTP account in several simple steps and with less than a couple of mouse clicks, so even in case you don’t have previous experience, you’ll be able to administer an account in a seamless way.
