FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for exchanging files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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 program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you encounter any impediments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even different accounts that can access the exact same directory – if you wish different people to be able to connect to the same content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not include any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to update your Internet sites without a hitch. In case you want to limit the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account completely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP software applications. Furthermore, we’ve got comprehensive help articles and educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
