FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transferring web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without accessing any other directory in your website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the cloud hosting offered by us, because we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can run multiple Internet sites at once or grant other individuals access to separate directories. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files anymore, you can update the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same folder – in case you wish different users to be able to access the same web content with totally different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers do not involve any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to update your websites without effort. In case you would like to restrict the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account completely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP client applications. In addition, we have compiled comprehensive step-by-step articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
