FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of exchanging website files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Any of the hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design application installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous Internet sites all at once and to update them without any efforts. In case you give the login information to another individual to do a specific task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a few mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your 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 haven’t set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a given FTP account or to edit its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve compiled different how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a website hosting plan before.
