FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, 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 main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any predicament.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a limit on this feature with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a given account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected a number of how-to video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a hosting service before.
