FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of sending files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll 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 lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to give other people access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software program installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous websites all at once and to keep them up to date effortlessly. If you give the login info to some other person to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we have not put a limit on this service with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a designer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled different video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.
