FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to transmit web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire 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 numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any impediments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts with access to the very same directory – if you want several users to be able to connect to the same website content with different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t involve a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your Internet sites with no effort. In case you want to block the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software programs. Furthermore, we have prepared in-depth help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
