FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of sending website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without accessing any other content in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting plans offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other people access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design program pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous websites all at once and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you provide the login info to some other individual for a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts with access to the very same folder – in case you would like different users to be able to connect to the exact same content with totally different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not involve a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your website files and to update your websites with ease. In case you would like to restrict the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account completely with no more than a few clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP programs. What’s more, we’ve prepared in-depth help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
