FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transfer website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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. FTP is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to see any other directory in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to grant other persons access to any website in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to run numerous websites at the same time and to keep them up to date without any effort. If you give the login info to another individual to carry out a particular task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a few clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t restricted this service with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to modify its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you no longer require it – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve prepared different how-to video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a website hosting package previously.
