FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of sending website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need 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 used by a lot of 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 example, can carry out their task without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux website hosting packages that we offer, since we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can run multiple Internet sites all at once or give other people access to different folders. As soon as a particular job has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click to manage different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a given account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a designer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot a number of instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a hosting package previously.
