FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have 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 used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other directory in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting. This feature isn’t limited, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can connect to. Useful options such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP programs are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked at signup, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you need from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a given account any longer, you can just delete it and block 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 person departs your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. A detailed Help database that comprises how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any past experience.
