FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or entire 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 many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with any of our Linux shared hosting. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP software applications are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t restricted this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a given account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a designer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve prepared a number of instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a website hosting package before.
