FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transferring web files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you 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. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without accessing any other directory in your website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the shared web hosting that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can run numerous sites all at once or give other people access to multiple directories. As soon as a certain task has been carried out and you would not like that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve chosen on the order form, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT specialist leaves the firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help library that comprises how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any prior experience.
