FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, 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 program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to see any other directory in the website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not limited this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a designer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore.
