FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a PC 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 shown in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or entire 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 plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other content in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with any of our Linux shared hosting. This functionality is not restricted, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one mouse click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as updating the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP client apps are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the package that you’ve selected on the order form, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT individual leaves your company and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help repository that contains video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any previous experience.
