FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to view any other directory in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our Linux cloud packages. This service is not limited, so with our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and the folders that they can connect to. Handy functions such as changing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP software programs are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this service with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve shot different instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts if you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.
