FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transferring website 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 check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud web hosting services that we’re offering, since we have decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can maintain numerous websites all at once or grant other persons access to different folders. As soon as a particular job has been accomplished and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve compiled different instructional video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a web hosting package previously.
