FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish 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 main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Any of the cloud web hosting packages that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to give other people access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software application pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to run multiple sites all at once and to keep them up to date without any effort. In case you provide the login details to another person for a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not limited this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is done with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a hosting plan previously.
