FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program like 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 shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the shared plans that we’re offering, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple Internet sites at once or provide other people with access to multiple directories. As soon as a particular task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will allow you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve picked on the order page, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a given account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist departs your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An extensive Help repository that comprises video tutorials will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any prior experience.
