FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for sending web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, 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 main program window. All you have 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 lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as 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 permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are truly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a vast number of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to change it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can watch our exhaustive video tutorials, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
