FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to transfer website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous 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 Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their job and you do not want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not limited this service with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to modify its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without effort if you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to access your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have created different instructional video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.
