FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transfer files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other folder in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given time. In case you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any difficulties.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting many sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you have never had a web hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive instructional video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.
