FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability 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 respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux shared website hosting packages offered by our company, because we have decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous sites all at once or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. As soon as a given job has been accomplished and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can just delete that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a particular account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your files any longer. For your convenience, we have selected different instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a website hosting plan previously.
