FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting packages that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to grant other people access to any website in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your home PC, you will be able to maintain multiple sites all at once and to keep them up to date without efforts. If you provide the login credentials to some other individual to do a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a developer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot a number of how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a hosting plan before.
