FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for exchanging files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our shared website hosting plans. This service is not limited, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can access. Handy functions such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP apps are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to change its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with no effort if you no longer need it – for example, if you have hired a designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have shot a number of tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.
