FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to exchange web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have 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 used by lots 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 example, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other directory in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. If you do not want to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a designer has completed their task and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you run into any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the package that you have chosen upon signup, as the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can just remove it and block persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert exits the firm and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. An extensive Help repository that contains educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have past experience.
